Governor's credentials challenged in court

21 August 2013, 15:05 Rodgers Buluma

The eligibility under which Ali Hassan Joho got hold of the Mombasa gubernatorial seat has received another question mark after the former head of students at Kampala International University filed a case in the Mombasa Law court claiming that Hassan Joho was never a student at the university and that his certificates are not legitimate.

Sylus Otuke, the former head of students at the KIU who was represented in court by his lawyer Otuke, said that the holder of Mombasa gubernatorial seat was never a student at the university and that he used another student’s certificate to qualify as a contestant in the gubernatorial race.

Otuke’s lawyer said that there is no record indicating the attendance of Joho at the Kampala University in the said school of Business Management.

He added that the only student enrolled at the university at that stipulated time for the so called Joho’s degree was a Ugandan citizen called Hassan Ali who is suspected to have been the source of Joho’s degree certificate.

This is the second whistle to be blown challenging the eligibility of Joho as the Mombasa governor, after Suleiman Shaabal who was a contestant in the gubernatorial race filed a case in court claiming that the March 4th gubernatorial elections in Mombasa were filled with controversy, calling for a recount of votes of selected polling stations in the county.

If it is proven that Joho holds a degree that is not legitimate, his gubernatorial win will be nullified and Mombasa County forced to go back to the ballot to elect another governor as the law requires any holder of the gubernatorial seat to have attained at least a degree in his education.
