“You Aren’t Sultan,” Jicho Pevu’s Mohammed Ali To Hassan Joho


August 8th is right about the corner and politicians are all over throwing their last punches aimed at convincing voters.

Tightly contested Nyali Member of Parliament seat is one to watch out for since it involves a face off between Joho’s brother, Said Abdalla Saido and former KTN journalist, Mohammed Ali.

Moha recently penned the two, Joho and his opponent, an open letter on social media, warning them against any underhand tricks up their sleeves. He wrote;


Today I have woken up to the most laughable piece of fake news that I have ever seen. In an attempt to save his candidate, Abuu Joho has fallen back on the claim that I, Mohamed Ali, am a Jubilee candidate! It is funny, but also sad.

Sad because rather than campaign on the real issues in Nyali, my competitor Saido, and the real person behind him, Abuu, can only use fake, irresponsible and just silly tactics to compete. Here is free advice from me, STOP WASTING TIME, if you really have something to tell the people, tell them. STOP HIRING THUGS to disrupt my meetings. STOP BUYING YOUNG MEN DRUGS so that they can do your bidding. THEY ARE NOT SLAVES, AND YOU ARE NOT THEIR SULTAN. All you are doing is injuring the very people whose votes you want. If you choose to bribe people, bribe them with the truth; tell them how you will solve their problems, as I have been doing. You know Saido, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. My campaign is about improving the lives of all Nyalians. Today I am offering to improve your life as a resident of Nyali too; campaign peacefully, compete with honour, and SPEAK to the people. Msikubali akili ndogo kutawala akili kubwa. Uzeni sera!

Yours truly,
Mohamed ALI.”
