Mvita Constituency Parliamentary Aspirant Said Twaha has condemned the recent incident where his posters were pulled down by opponents in the race.

Twaha who is vying for the seat on Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) political Party says such political witch hunts actually amounts to nothing saying his opponents have depicted their incapability of leading Mvita residents.

According to Twaha, all the aspirants should battle with each other on basis of agenda, ideologies and communal service and never at any point pull down each other’s posters or tear off campaign banners.

Speaking in Mombasa, Twaha who was this week handed his nomination certificate by PAA to view for the Mvita Parliamentary seat noted that such unlawful incidents will not deter him from pursuing the seat.

“It is evident that my opponents are in panic following their childish actions of pulling down my posters along the Nyerere Avenue, I will not be bowed,” noted Mr Twaha.


He said that he has moved on campaigning and meeting locals at grassroots level selling his development agenda to them.

“I reiterate that my objectives are still intact among them being improving on the health sector that has been worked on by the predecessor, Mvita MP Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir, face-lifting the Education sector, Environmental and sanitation related programs and Economic empowerment are just but some of my top agenda,” noted Mr Twaha.

He noted that his journey to clinch Mvita Parliamentary seat will never be compromised by any.

Twaha, a well-known youthful leader and community activist in Mombasa wants all aspirants within Mvita Constituency to embrace peaceful political campaigns convincing locals to support their bid through tangible development agenda and not political rhetoric.

He has urged his support to avoid engaging any opponents on the incident saying he will pin more posters across the entire Coast.
