Activist Boniface Mwangi has called out Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho asking him to clean the city as he referred to him as a ‘tourist governor.’
The activist said that the stench was what reminded him that he was in the coastal city. Mwangi said that the smell was bad especially during the rainy season.
I arrived in Mombasa last night and if l had any doubt l was in Mombasa, the stench of Kibarani reminded me l had arrived. It’s a rainy morning in Mombasa, the Kibarani smoke isn’t visible but the assault on our nostrils is there. Tourist Governor @HassanAliJoho clean up Mombasa!

Many people have complained about the stench in Mombasa saying that the city lacks proper drainage and that there was also a lack of proper garbage collection machinery.
Traders at the Kongowea Market had refused to pay for services in December, 2017 because they said that they were not getting value for their money. The President, Uhuru Kenyatta had asked the traders not to pay if the market was not being cleaned an issue that did not sit well with the county government.
