    A group seeking to secede Kenya's coastal region from the country's mainland now wants to meet the Queen of Britain to petition her over land grievances dating back to the colonialism era.



    The outlawed Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) plans to send a delegation to Queen Elizabeth II in June to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration.

    The group, rallying under the banner pwani si Kenya (the Coast is not part of Kenya), complains of land dispossession and marginalisation by successive post-independence governments in Kenya.

    MRC secretary general Randu Nzai said the group's officials will liaise with the UK High Commissioner in Kenya before the planned visit to facilitate issuance of visas.

    “MRC has reached this decision to send a delegation to the British government and issue the Queen with a memorandum on their grievances on historical injustices and secession," said Mr Nzai.

    “We want to take the treaties (signed with the British colonial government) in our possession to the Queen and state the case of the historical injustices that the coast region has suffered since independence, “ he said.

    Mr Nzai said the planned meeting with the Queen will not discuss issues that are before the Kenyan court.

    “The issue of being outlawed will not be part of our agenda with the Queen unless she decides to ask MRC on the issue. This matter can be handled by the courts. The emphasis is secession,” Mr Nzai said.

    MRC spokesman Mohammed Rashid Mraja said the group's officials are currently seeking an appointment with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. They want any date during the month-long jubilee celebrations.

    “We want to have an official appointment with the Queen in Britain so that our presence will not disrupt her programmes during the historic moment," he said.

    Mr Mraja alleged that the Kenyan government had selected proxy members of the group to accompany the official delegation to attend the celebrations.


    “MRC has information that discussions are being for the movement to stop its stand on secession and continue to belong to the Kenya government, “he said.

    On the trip, Mr Mraja added that the groups officials are raising funds to facilitate the tour to Britain.

    “So far, MRC plans to send the national officials but in the event funds become a constraint then our lawyer will go instead," he said.

    Jameni ieleweke hapa kuwa Pwani ikijitenga na Kenya haijiungi na Tanganyika, itahuisha muugano na Zanzibar. Eneo hili lenye utajiri mkubwa wa mafuta na madini litakuwa uti wa mgongo wa uchumi wa Afrika Mashariki. Jamhuri ya Muungano Hoya.

    Get your facts RIGHT. Mombasa Republican Council was formed by 'Pwani' people in Kenya with no instigation from abroad. Its a home grown organization addressing historical injustices perpetrated by successive regimes in Nairobi. Its time to pay up for past and ongoing discrimination and one of the major options is the breaking the union and returning to Zanzibar once it breaks up from Tanganyika. The people of Mombasa and Zanzibar reject continued colonization by the regimes in Dodoma and Nairobi. The Oil Rich East African Coast Should have one nation. Jamhuri ya Mwambao.

    Ule utani wa watu toka Nairobi n.k kuwa pwani ya kenya ni Tanzania kutokana na lugha ya Kiswahili inavyoongewa pwani ya Kenya sasa inakuwa kweli. Wa-Pwani wa Kenya wanajisikia wako karibu zaidi na Wa-Tanzania wa Tanganyika na Zanzibar.

    Ili mambo yawe muruwa zaidi basi Wa-Pwani wa Mombasa, Lamu, Malindi, Taita n.k mnakaribishwa ktk Muungano wa kweli wa Afrika Mashariki yaani kujiunga na 'Waswahili' wenzenu wa Tanzania na kufanya Muungano mkubwa zaidi wa kuigwa Afrika.

    dont comment, soon unfamiliar jerseys will be patrolling the streets. anyway, i fail to understand the real motivation behind this guys. When kenya gained independence new maps were drawn to a central govt. This sultan thing has some pips in the civilian and armed administration laughing with 'undertones'. Let them rattle the wrong arms though its almost evident they wont do a thing.

    This I can confirm to you whatever you are witnessing @ pwani is a ---religious* #escapade, and if you want 2 prove me right there is the point. In kenya we are divided tribalically, but the goodness there is a cure 4 that. but a religious divide is simply irreversable. MRC their main outcry is land injustices of successive government, but the Irony is that is the county that has the highest number of land owners that have title deed since the inception of narc in 2000. malindi county and recently Kilifi county and the government is still dishing out title deeds to those areas.

    I thinks the imams at coasto have lost it. smoking crack and dishing it out to their congregation, peace is never preached in mosques nowadays, but jihad.
