A group of Mombasa residents from Ukambani region have had mixed reactions to Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s declaration that he will be in the 2022 presidential race.

They spoke to Musyi FM at Changamwe this morning, 30th June, on Kibwana’s intention to vie for the topmost leadership position in the country.

Some supported Kibwana’s move, while others felt that this would only divide the Kamba community, considering that Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is also eyeing the presidency.

“We are supposed to speak with one voice to gain respect from other communities. If we become divided, we will be strengthening our rivals and enemies,” said Joshua Kiminza, the director of Mombasa Moja Initiative

He said Wiper Party leader Musyoka had been leading the community politically and only he from the Ukambani region should go for the top seat.

“We should be wooing other communities to grant support to our political leader to get the big job,” he said.

David Mutua, the deputy chairman of Wiper Party in Nyali Sub-County, said Kibwana would only divide the community votes, and the community would lose politically.

Mutua advised Kibwana to support Musyoka now and wait for his chance next time.

But Muoki Nzingu, a resident of Changamwe Sub-County, supported Kibwana, saying it was time the community tried someone else, as Musyoka had got his chance.
