Joho, Sonko argue in public as Uhuru watches

10 January 2016, 10:39 William Korir

Nairobi - In an unexpected twist, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho argued with Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko as President Uhuru Kenyatta watched in disbelief.

Joho, who was first to speak, told off the President for ignoring him during his two week stay in Mombasa, saying that he felt disrespected and that he should have come to him even though he is an opposition chief, since he wants to work for the people of Mombasa together with the government.

But Sonko, who was not to be denied a chance to speak, quickly hit back, accusing Joho of trying to blackmail the president.

The President, who watched closely, did not comment on the matter.

The incident took place Saturday during the handover ceremony of 7,800 title deeds in Likoni of the controversial Waitiki scheme.

When contacted later by News24, Sonko was not in any mood to apologize.

" I spoke from my heart. People should not insult the President and expect us to sit and watch," he said of Joho's comments.

" There are ways of approaching things. The Governor should have approached the President on the side with his feelings and not thrown it out in public like he did," he added.

Joho was not available for comment.

The incident was the culmination of a stay in Mombasa by the President that has been widely criticized by the opposition which claims the President has been using underhand means to try gain traction at the Coast.
