Government orders Joho to return gun

10 March 2016, 21:24 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has ordered Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho to forward his licensed firearm.

The Governor, who had earlier in the day been left without any bodyguards  after the government recalled his team of 5 guards stated that he had been called by the government and asked to take his firearm to the nearest Police Station.

Samuel Kimaru, the Chief Licensing Officer was said to have made the order.

" Mr. Kimaru the Chief Licensing Officer of Firearms has called me to return my licensed firearm," Joho said Thursday night.

" He has requested me to do it immediately and I have refused and asked them to send official communication on the same," he added.

When News24 contacted Kimaru, he declined to comment on the matter.

The issue is likely to raise temperatures in Mombasa and opposition CORD supported regions which have been up in arms over what is said to be harassment of the Governor and his family.

In February, Joho's family warehouse in Mombasa was closed down by the government which stated that they were dealing in contraband goods.

It was later reopened and then closed.

Joho's issues, according to opposition chiefs, begun when he openly criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta in January for ignoring him during his month long tour to the Coastal City.
