Deputy President William Ruto jets to Mombasa on a two-day tour at the Coast.


Among the leaders to welcome him at the coastal city include; Mohammed Ali (Nyali), Ali Mbogo(Kisauni), former Kilifi senatorial aspirant Ken Nyale, Mombasa former Senator Omar Hassan among others.

The DP will proceed to a series of private meetings with leaders drawn from all the counties at the whole Coast region.



“The DP is happy with Ali’s development record in the short time he has been in office. He wants to be associated with such leaders so he can show Kenya that even those who have no name can take Kenya forward,” said one of Ruto’s key strategists in Mombasa.

The DP will walk from the library to the Kongowea market where he will tour the stalls and meet with the traders.


“His idea is to let the people talk. He wants to hear from the horse’s mouth what the hustler nation has to say.

“For a long time, Mombasa leaders have been the ones telling of the problems residents are facing. This time, Number Two wants to hear from the hustlers themselves what they are going through,” the source said.

“The DP is a man who goes to where there is a problem so he can solve it. We actually do not know where he will be going or at what time. But he will be visiting the people’s office in Nyali,” Ali said.


DP Ruto is said to be eyeing the Kwale county, where he wants to have his people strategically placed to take over most of the elective seats.

Kwale county, it is believed, is the next big thing with mineral depots being discovered in the hilly parts of the county.

On Thursday, two different programmes emerged showing two itineraries supposedly for the DP.

One showed the DP would be visiting the Inua Mama Mashinani Jenga Taifa offices at the GPO while the other indicated he will be heading to Mvita to visit the Kenya Women for Change Organization.

“The DP is here strictly to listen to the hustlers’ woes in terms of business opportunities and the suffering they have been undergoing. Anything else, I am not aware of,” he said.

“He is here to discuss issues to do with Mombasa and the way forward. You know how Mombasa is being reduced to a shelled city by some policies that are detrimental.”
