We are remaining with less than a year to the 2022 general elections.The political drumbeats are getting louder and louder since a majority of aspiring candidates for different elective positions have already declared their interests publicly we also expect to see others doing so.
Mombasa County gubernatorial seat is being eyed by a good number of people.So far, we have heard of Mvita MP Hon Abdulswamad Nassir, Former Senator Hassan Omar, Deputy Governor William Kingi, Businessman Suleiman Shahbal and Kisauni MP Ali Mbogo.
The son to the then KANU's Mombasa Supremo- Late Sharrif Nassir bin Taib ; Hon Abdulswamad of Mvita might emerge as the winner in the race.This is because he declared his interest a long time ago.He is also a notable political figure in the Coastal region because he was even elected through ODM party.

Just like any contestant, he will experience competition at its best but it will not be a surprise seeing him elected as the governor next year.
