As the 2022 general elections draws near, some politicians are seeking for re-election, while those who will be completing their second constitutional terms will be either retiring from active politics or seek to be elected so as to serve in other political positions.
The Mombasa County Gubernatorial race will be an interesting one since the current Governor Ali Hassan Joho is currently serving his second and final term. This means that there will be a new governor, who will try to match the splendid leadership illustrated by the outgoing.
A total of six politicians who are seeking to replace him have already started announcing their interests in the race, while at the same time started campaigning for their election.
These politicians include the Mvita Member of Parliament Abdulswamad Nassir, businessman Suleiman Shahbal, Likoni constituency Member of Parliament Mishi Mboko, former Mombasa Senator, Hassan Omar, deputy governor William Kingi and the former Nyali constituency Hezron Awiti.
While it is not known whether Joho will vie for any political position, the six top leaders will be seeking to outwit each other by influencing the residents into voting for them.
