The outcry in Mombasa is no longer a secret ,an outlawed Mombasa Republic Council is gaining popularity as days goes down towards next Kenya Election 2012. These guys are claiming that Mombasa was under Sultanate Of Zanzibar ...who made a treaty with King Of England ...and lease the famous and economy backbone Mombasa to become part of British East Africa colony[Kenya],,,it was then 1895.
It was decided in the treaty that after 100 years ..the residents of Mombasa will be free to conduct a referendum to decide wheather to :-
1] Remain As part of KENYA
2]RETURN to Zanzibar
3]Become a Republic[mombasa republic]
For many years now Kenya Gorvernment have tried to hide and downplay MRC efforts ..however now with changing political terrain and more lack of strong leadership like those of Kenyatta or Moi who could handle the troublesome citizens with iron hand ,will give room for Mombasa Republicans to twist there muscles.....
With recent threat that they will not participate in Kenya next general election.In my perspective i find this a very trying moment for the unit of Kenya and East Africa in great...if Kenya will fall into a trap of post election violence next year....that may give chance to Mombasa Republic to declare themselve a free state.......,if at all the rest of the country will be busy fighting that will not be abnormal.
Mombasa Republican Council have already pertitioned British Mornachy to revoke her treaty with Sultanate of Zanzibar ...and they are up to proceed to London Court on this.
In the other hand ,the situation of Tanzania [Tangayika] and her partner Zanzibar ..is not that appealing ..and not many years from now ,the marriage may lead to a divorce..we may soon find ourself have one more country in East Africa, Zanzibar [unguja ,Pemba,Mombasa] or two more countries ..Zanzibar and Mombasa ..
Until then ...Time will Tell!!!
