HASSAN JOHO and KINGI agree to end the bad blood between them as they shake hands ahead of the 2022 General Elections

Friday August 10, 2018 - Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho, and his arch-rival and Kilifi Governor, Amason Kingi, have buried the hatchet after they shook hands in a sign of unity. 

The two have been brought together by Tourism CS, Najib Balala.

Joho and Kingi heeded to a call by Balala at his office where they agreed to form a tripartite partnership with focus on tourism improvement in the Coast region.

This comes amid emerging political speculation that Governor Joho and Kingi have parted ways as each was hunting for support from elected leaders to reign in support from the across the Coast, a one time Opposition bedrock.

Both Joho, Kingi and Balala agreed to jointly work towards ensuring that major events are held in the two Coastal Counties so as to boost the businesses and livelihoods of the people.

They also planned to develop joint digital marketing strategies to promote the coastal areas and their attendant tourist attractions.

“The National Government will, in conjunction with the Mombasa City Government, launch the Mombasa Regeneration Programme – similar to the ongoing one for Nairobi City – in September to ensure the Coastal city regains its lustre and glory,” Balala said.
