In Summary

  • He termed the claims as a move to intimidate him and spoil his name among voters.
  • The MP said that it was the second time Mr Marwa had linked him to a youth militia gang.
  • Mr Marwa had also linked some ODM officials with criminal acts and ordered that they be arrested.

Jomvu MP Badi Twalib has denied allegations that he operates a militia and challenged Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa to produce evidence on the claims.

Reacting to Mr Marwa’s claim that he operates a militia youth gang that was preparing to disrupt operations of the recently launched standard gauge railway and cargo operations in Mombasa, Mr Badi warned that he will take legal action against Mr Marwa if he does not substantiate the allegations.

He termed the claims as a move to intimidate him and spoil his name among voters “only because I am a close friend of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho”.

“Mr Marwa takes anybody close to Governor Joho as his automatic enemy. He should not intimidate me and I want him to produce evidence [on] the allegations that I operate a youth militia gang,” he said during a press conference at Triton Petrol Station in Mombasa.
