Activist Boniface Mwangi took a swipe at Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho over the sorry state of Mombasa county.
He told the governor to make efforts to clean his city.
”If Joho could put as much effort in cleaning Mombasa as he has put in his personal visibility, Mombasa would be a whole lot cleaner. If Joho put as much effort in cleaning Mombasa as he has put in maintaining that famous beard of his, I bet it would be the cleanest city in the country. Mombasa could use a “Joho beard treatment”, washed and cleaned everyday.”
He asked Joho to leave a legacy of a governor who made Mombasa a clean city as not many have ever seen a clean Mombasa.
Boniface also told the governor to put cabro on the road that leads to the public beach ‘Pirates’ and also light the area so that the traders would have an easier time.
Mombasa has been struggling with garbage disposal and drainage issues over the years.
”Most Mombasa people have no memory of a cleaner Mombasa, that’s why they throw garbage anywhere and everywhere. Mombasa and Kenya as a whole needs to create a clean-up culture, weekly community clean-ups should be organized at ward level. Apart from garbage collection, Governor Joho should repair and build pedestrian footpaths, which are almost non-existent, in the entire city of Mombasa. Mombasa is a small, beautiful, friendly city choking with garbage, and unpainted buildings.”
