 Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has accused over ten leaders who have branded their donations during the naval virus pandemic. He said its difficult time for everyone, not a campaigning contest.

The Governor had a meeting with the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai about the security of the city. The two leaders also visited several areas including Ferry channel and Shanzu roadblock.

Addressing reporters after IG Mutyambai donated 400 bales of flour to the people of Mombasa, the Governor promised that all those who made donations would receive a report detailing how the donations were put to use.

"Why go through the hustle of ensuring you carry a sack of food by yourself, take a picture and even label your name to be seen to be doing something? the Governor questioned the branding leaders.

"After all, you're serving God. Your gift or reward will be given to you by God, so stop thinking about other people at this point," he said.

"There is no point in me sending food to one house, RC to send to the same house, then the IG to do the same, then the other politicians. We are not in a political contest, we cannot be in any political contest today, today is about humanity, "

"So, here in Mombasa, we have a system that can stand the test of the moment any time. You have to trust us. We have marked the people, we have taken their contacts, we have developed technology to ensure every penny that is spent on supporting the needy families can be accounted for, "

"We have volunteers, we have civil society; Red Cross, HAKI Africa, Huria Africa, name it, who have come forward to offer a hand in providing support," he stated.
