  • Nyali Member of Parliament Mohammed Ali has come out to claim his life was in danger after unknown men raided his Nyali office on Sunday night, June 26. 

    In a press briefing, Ali claimed that the raid was carried out by state agents who fired gunshots in the air during the raid. 

    He claimed that his rivals were using police as a ploy to curtail his political bid. He questioned how goons could raid his office, directly opposite the office of the Deputy County Commissioner.

    "You are a very rich person we know that but we are poor and rich at heart. We shall fight you with our richness in our hearts until the last man standing. Continue using the police protection but the people of this county will assure that we bring a revolution so that we can save Mombasa county. 

    "As it stands, no one has been arrested. The police came to my offices and looked at the CCTV footage. What we know is that shots were fired in the air at night but we wonder why such an incident would happen directly opposite the office of the Deputy County Commissioner?" he posed. 

    The legislator claimed that the goons were after specific documents that were still in his possession. 

    "There are some of the things that they have stolen but the police will give more details later on. They were looking for a dossier that I was left with but I am not stupid to leave it at the office. I still have the document and we will continue to spill the beans bit by bit," he pointed out. 

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Mombasa Director of Criminal Investigations Barasa Walumoli, however, refuted the claims and affirmed that the incident was a pure case of burglary. 

    He added that the detectives guarding Ali's office opened fire at the goons who narrowly escaped. 

    "This is a pure case of burglary it did not involve police officers in any way. In fact, the detectives guarding the office opened fire at the goons but they escaped. Nothing major was stolen, just a TV that was in the front office was taken. We are not sure of the number of the goons who raided the premises," Walumoli noted. 

    In the press briefing, Mombasa Gubernatorial candidate, Hassan Omar alleged that they would hold the police accountable should anything happen to the Nyali Member of Parliament.
