Mombasa People Did It Right

Mombasa Leaders & CSs Matiang’i (Interior), Macharia (Transport) give a press conference after talks on the way forward concerning cargo transportation. The talks yielded a suspension of the directive to have cargo hauled from Mombasa Port using SGR only.

There were protests in Mombasa concerning the shipping of jobs inland to Nairobi then Naivasha.

The PEOPLE resisted the autocracy and bad policies of the Kenyatta regime.

The talks

The Standard Gauge Railways (SGR) which is white elephant and doesn’t add any value to the Kenyan economy, continues to mistreat Kenyans working there.

Complaints to the government has been met with, ‘vumilieni, mmepata kazi’.

Mombasa residents who work in the most hit sector due to the directive to have all cargo hauled through SGR would hear none of it. They said enough is enough in the most lodu way.
The demonstrations they held at least bore fruits.

The demonstrations, picketing, petitioning forced Mombasa leaders to reach out to the central government’s ministry of transport and also that of interior.

The results was the suspension of the directive to force Container Freight Stations (CFSs) to use SGR to bring cargo to Nairobi.

Though the win is temporary, Mombasa residents showed that is is possible. They used the provisions of Article 37 of the constitution to demand that their rights be respected.

For Kenya to change, Kenyans need to change.

In the end then,

‘We are not struggling for positions. Holding public office in an unjust and brutal society like Kenya is not our agenda. We want freedom and justice for all Kenyans – unconditionally. Our end game is a merit-based society governed by the rule of law. Nothing else. #SayNoToUjinga’, – Miguna Miguna, Lawyer
