Case challenging Joho's credentials postponed

22 November 2013, 10:09 Rodgers Buluma

Mombasa - The case challenging the academic qualifications of the Mombasa County Governor, Ali Hassan Joho, has been postponed.

The hearing of the case, that was filed by a former student of a tertiary Ugandan institution who is said to have been the then President of Kenyan students in Uganda Union, refuting claims that Joho holds a degree from the Kampala International University, has been postponed because most of the councils in the case were  present.

The councils were said to have been held by a case of similar magnitude but which was taking place at the Supreme Court in Nairobi, forcing the Mombasa high court to ask for the representatives of the councils to agree on a new date for Joho's case.

The councils present - including Kanaba who is representing the second respondent, Balala, Nabicha who is representing the first interested party and Mohamed who is representing the second interested party - agreed for the court to have a new date for the hearing of the case. The court decided to have the date posted at the registry by Thursday morning.

Council for the second respondent had filed an application for the court to have the complainant deposit KES 5 million in court to act as security, an application that has not been ruled upon to date.

However, the Chancellor of the university confirmed that indeed Ali Hassan Joho was a student at the institution and that he was on a special program that required him to be physically present for only a week.
