Former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar has joined President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee camp.
Speaking in Mombasa during the president’s tour today, the former Human Rights activist welcomed the invitation by Deputy President William Ruto to join the ruling party.
He used the opportunity to attack the National Super Alliance (NASA) leadership led by Presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
Mr Omar resigned a month ago as Wiper Party’s Secretary-General, citing lack of support from Hon Raila Odinga and his party leader Stephen Kalonzo.
Omar vied for the Mombasa gubernatorial seat but came a distant third to the incumbent namesake Hassan Joho of ODM and Jubilee’s Shabal Mohamed.
“We cannot have a situation where Raila is the president of this country and Hassan Joho as the governor of Mombasa,” he said today.
However, his move did not go well with several Kenyans on twitter.

What Hassan Omar has done, that he always wanted to do ever since he began his fights with joho, is what dogs do..eating their own vomit!

Hassan Omar was the biggest critic of jubilee. In his own words Jubilee is the worst govt ever.
So, what changed?

Tin-gods and Jacobins like Hassan Omar are better left to fade away into oblivion. He'll be so surprised that no one in NASA will call him pic.twitter.com/SwJ5oKcMR1

Hassan Omar was never even in NASA, he was planted by Jubilee to leak information,and he did so well.

Hassan Omar will be forgotten after 3 months just like Ababu Namwamba who is now a JUBILEE blogger.
We don't joke with loyalty.

But as proverbial that even a madman has relatives, the former Senator too had those who hailed his move.
Show me a JUBILEE heavyweight who lost in the 8/8 polls and has since joined these losers otherwise known as NASA. Hassan Omar is wise.
