Lobby group accuse Jubilee govt of witch-hunting Joho

07 November 2014, 10:37 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A lobby group in Mombasa has accused the Jubilee government of secretly pushing for Governor Ali Hassan Joho's degree case.

Muslims for Human Rights (Muhuri) said the probe is mere witch-hunt and deliberate strategy by the Jubilee government to drag development in Mombasa County.

In a press statement, the Executive Director of Muhuri, Hassan Abdi Abdille, said the continued interest in the matter gives the impression that the Director of Public Prosecution and government have personal issues with the Governor.

“As you are all aware, no authority is vested with legal authority to recall, cancel or revoke a certificate apart from the institution  the degree was obtained,” said Abdille.

He said any statement suggesting the revocation of the degree certificate is idle and irresponsible.

Muhuri said the high court had already exonerated Joho from any wrong doing and the continued witch-hunt.

The lobby group questioned the relentless efforts by Silas Otuke to oust Joho from Office.

Muhuri said Mombasa residents are tired of the occurrences and requested the Jubilee government to let Joho discharge his mandate as the Governor of Mombasa.

Muhuri's reaction comes just a day after the DDP ordered fresh probe into Joho degree saga.

Two weeks ago, three-judge bench appointed by the Chief Justice Willy Mutunga ruled that the petition filed by Otuke was premature and nullified it.

They further said that Otuke had not followed the right channels before moving to court.

In the case, Otuke had alleged that Governor Joho did not have a Business Administration degree from Kampala University.
