'Joho will suffer for insulting Uhuru'

14 March 2016, 22:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho's woes will not end any time soon.

Sources tell News24 that the Governor's issues will not end any time soon as he is being sought after for having a go at President Uhuru Kenyatta in Mombasa in January.

The Governor told off the President for ignoring him to his face, a move that did not go down well with Jubilee Coalition bosses.

Since then, the Governor and his family has landed into issues after issues and it seems they will not end any time soon.

A Jubilee Coalition chief is said to have been overheard saying that Joho's troubles are far from over.

Apart from his bodyguards being taken away, his gun licence being revoked and his family's businesses affected it seems more and more will come.

" Joho will learn not to play with the President again," the MP from Central Kenya was heard saying over the weekend.

Joho and CORD leader Raila Odinga think that the issues facing the Governor are clearly politically motivated.

" For about one month now, particularly since a by-election was declared in Malindi, I have been at the centre of state sponsored machinations targeting me individually and businesses linked to me.

" These acts that amount to persecution, intimidation and blackmail have taken more dramatic and scary turn after the by-elections. Suddenly, the government realised I have excess body guards that have to be taken away. It was after Malindi was won by ODM that the National Government decided that I have guns that I no longer deserve and that I need to surrender.

" These misgivings have been communicated to me in a most uncouth and unprofessional manner. Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery and Nelson Marwa, the Regional Coordinator for Coast, have chosen to speak to me through press conferences.

" I take serious reservations to this manner of conducting critical matters of state.

" I will leave the matter of the guns to go through the legal process that we have instituted in the hope that we can return some decorum and professionalism to the chest thumping and threats that the National Government wants to call debate.

" I however wish to address the more fundamental issues that I believe are at the heart of this grandstanding by the Interior Ministry and the remnants of the old order of provincial administration.
