He may be on a self-imposed sabbatical from the political campaigns but Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has kept trending in his County.

On Friday, and in a move perceived to highlight his show of political might, Joho, 44, paraded his campaign machinery to the excitement of a majority within the Coastal town.

This machinery included an estimated 50 top of the range campaign vehicles and human resource.

What’s more, all these cars are branded in the Governor’s image as well the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party colours, which he is the Deputy Partly leader.

STRONG OPPOSITION

The vehicles snaked their way through the coastal city’s CBD, plus several surburbs, including Buxton, Kongowea, Kibarani Highway, Changamwe, Jomvu Kuu and Miritini.

Joho, who is seeking to retain the gubernatorial seat, faces strong opposition from the area Senator Hassan Omar, who is also the Wiper’s Secretary General.

Other aspirants in the race to unseat Joho are outgoing Nyali MP Hezron Awiti, and Jubilee Party’s Suleiman Shahbal.
