Mvita MP reveals plan to succeed Joho in 2022
Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir has disclosed his plan to vie for the Mombasa gubernatorial seat in 2022.
Nassir who succeeded in defending his MP seat in the just concluded general election is one of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s right-hand me in Coast region.
He is among MPs who joined hands with Joho to campaign for NASA leader Raila Odinga ahead of the August 8 polls.
“You have allowed me to serve you for five years. We have embarked on this journey together and my deeds have informed your decision,” the soft spoken legislator said after successfully defending his MP seat.
“We pray that God grants us life so that I serve you in a much bigger capacity in 2022.”
Nassir is the son to former powerful cabinet minister the late Sharrif Nassir.
He has helped launch multiple projects in the agricultural, ICT, education, roads and health sectors in Mvita constituency since 2013 when he was elected.
