Why Uhuru is not happy with Joho

16 March 2016, 21:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 

President Uhuru Kenyatta is not happy with the fact that Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho undermined his Presidency in public during his trip to the Coast.

The President was initially diplomatic of the criticism sent his way by Joho during a rally in Likoni where the Governor accused him sidelining his efforts in the Coast during his tour.

But with the likes of Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko springing up against Joho and accusing him of undermining the Presidency, the President and his advisors took a different view to the issue.

Just a few days after the Joho criticism, his family’s depot in Mombasa was invaded by government officers and closed.

And with the Malindi by election campaigns not slowing down the criticism of the government by Joho, the President had to act.

“The President was told that Joho was undermining the Presidency. His advisers did not take too kindly the continued attacks by Joho on the Presidency,” a State House source told News24.

And with Joho and the CORD brigade in the Coast not stopping its attacks, a solution it seems was found to stifle the CORD Governor.

“He is outspoken. That is fine. However, he undermines the President all the time and that is not acceptable,” the source added.

Joho’s security was first of all taken down and then his firearm license taken out and with the full force of the law coming against him, with the government trying to arrest him.
