Looks like the repos you are checking against do not have php-mbstring - you can try the following:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10278561/how-to-install-php-mbstring-on-centos-6-2
I'm having the exact same issue. Did you have any luck fixing this?
For anybody else ending up here, try to install with:

yum install php-mbstring --enablerepo=remi
