Former Nairobi County gubernatorial aspirant Suleiman Shabal has broken silence after his Deputy Gubernatorial aspirant Selina joined UDA Party.

"The Kenya Kwanza, Mombasa team has received a big boost. Former ODM governor aspirant Suleiman Shabhal's running mate Selina Maitha and his key lieutenants joined our team to strengthen our coalition grassroots support and bring genuine change to Mombasa. Welcome to the people's coalition," reads Dp Ruto's post 

Suleiman Shabal through his Facebook said the attention was drawn by the photos posted by Deputy President William Ruto showing him, UDA leaders, and Selina Maitha whom he had appointed as running mate before stepping down from Mombasa gubernatorial race.

Shabal says he respects Selina's decision to decide on her new political affiliation.

"I want to state clearly that this was her personal decision and doesn't reflect my position and that of my team.

My team and I and the overwhelming majority of Mombasa residents remain firmly behind the Azimio la Umoja and our support for our party leader Raila Odinga is unshaken.

I will be at the forefront of the campaign for the Azimio la Umoja winning team both at the local and national levels to ensure we form the next government," reads Shabal's statement
