Hero from the coast Sheikh Khalid Balala

Share this:

Sheikh khalid balala , who was the leader of the islamic party of kenya , is considered one of kenya’s heroes from the coastal region. During the clamour for multipartyism in the early 90’s , the street preacher took the nyayo regime head on and paid a high price. He was stripped of his citizenship in 1994 for three years. And as dorcas wangira reports, last year, he was awarded ksh.6 million shillings in damages for the violation of his rights, he declined this amount, choosing to appeal instead.
