Mombasa Residence Not Happy About Joho's Food Donations.

A section of Mombasa county residence have come out to complain about the food donations from the county government of Mombasa. The county government has already started the food donation program under the County Emergency Household Relief and Nutrition Support Project.

Complain.

Some residence of Mombasa county who have already received the donations, have clearly stated that, they are not satisfied with the kind of food donation the that the county decided tho give them.

According to them, governor Ali Hassan Joho is given them the wrong food stuffs at the wrong time. They complained that this is the Ramadhan season for Muslims. And that Muslims have specific food stuff preferred for this Ramadhan season. Muslims will understand this more.

Following a video that Newstap.co.ke saw on Facebook page known as TYCOON NEWS, a group of women complained that their governor knows best their best food for Ramadhan but gave them the opposite.

The food stuffs that have already been donated to various household in Mombasa county consist of 5 packets of 2 kilograms of maize flour, 5 kilograms of rice, 2 liters of cooking oil and 5 kilograms of vetch seeds (pojo).

Preferred foods for Ramadhan

Muslims have specific types of foods that they eat during Ramadhan season. Most of this foods are believed to be the food that the Islamic prophet Muhammad broke his fast break with with during Ramadhan. Some of this food include If-tar which contains foods from all foods groups like fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, beans, meat and dairy.

Therefore the Mombasa residence were expecting the above types of foods from the county government.

According to the Mombasa county governor Ali Hassan Joho, they were giving out the food stuffs that they received from well wishers. This therefore means that they had no option to give out other types of food, but what they had received. And this food stuffs were strictly meant for the vulnerable household.

Other Complains.

Apart from the type of foods that was donated to the residence of Mombasa county from the county government, there are also some complains. Some people have complained that they did not receive the food donations. This is because they were not in the list. They complain that some household who are even much better than them were in the list and were given the food stuffs.

The above group did not blame their governor, but the people who were given the responsibility to identify the vulnerable households within the county.

What Joho has done to curb Covid-19

Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho is the most admired governor in Kenya currently. This is following his preparedness to fight corona virus in his county.

On April 22nd, he unveiled the Mombasa County Covid-19 Treatment Center domiciled at the Technical University Of Mombasa. The center will be handling the mild and moderate Covid-19 cases while the critical cases will be handled at the Coast General Teaching and Referral Hospital.

    Most people have not yet received any food in kidogo basi erea less than 10 people received and the rest were told no more food to be provided how come Governor Joho insit people not to got out yet his people they don’t give food to the needy. This is not fear at all most of Mombasa resident hv to go out to look for daily bread. Govonor Joho must open his eyes wide to those volontires whom are to supply the food stuff n make sure they provide to every needy person n not specific person. Thank you. Mama 001.

    The strategy used was to create enmity between people and their mzee wa mtaa. How can you come to a plot where there are 10 tenants and you give only 3 tenants leaving the other 7 reason being their name is not in the list. They should have chosen aspecific area randomly and then dispatch food. Otherwise there should be nothing like total lockdown in mombasa unless they want people to be killed by police because they went out looking for food

    The truth is that I am one of the volunteers doing the distributing that food but the village leader gave thy name and names of thy relative who stay in other area for the to have much of it while other go with nothing my heart was teacched by a 86year old woman who has no one to provide for her next to one of the village leader who we issue in the same house 3packs while that old lady name was not in the list .my heart was teacched again by a old mzee who came out as let as 13 00am he could not even see and gave me a paper to read his name and give him food after keying in his ID he was not a benefitury again he was not in the list I asked the chief what he told me he did have names of residence because thy are not need his list is for people who come for business in town and go back to likoni .for sure I was. Heart Brocken and ask my self why volunteers for no pay to serve people who do not need that help while the one desperate for the food see others receive and go to cat the long story short I went out with 96but gave out only 26 the rest are from likoni while we could do nothing to the two old man and woman simple because thy are not in the list .let God fight for those and many others who made my shed tears I need nothing but thy really need that food if any one wish I would take the to those houses God I trust you

    Appreciate what you get. Ramadhan is not about eating its all about prayers not foods. Stop complaining about the food think of those who dont have any. The food was for those who cannot even a bread not for people making complains and the kind of food they are getting. Stop complaining go and buy the food you want joho wont bring it for you
