Joho security reduced, not removed, Police say

10 March 2016, 22:46

Nairobi - Police headquarters has denied claims by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho that his security detail has been withdrawn, and clarified that it was only scaled down to five.

Capital News reported Police Spokesman Charles Owino saying Joho was initially assigned 15 security officers and 10 were withdrawn in line with a new policy requiring all Governors to have a maximum of five.

“Previously the security situation in Mombasa warranted such a big number but it’s not there anymore,” Owino told Capital FM News.

“This is not happening to Joho alone. All the 47 Governors must have a considerable numbers so that we can allow our officers to serve other security duties.”

Joho had earlier, as reported by The Star protested the move and even accused Coast Regional Commissioner Nelson Marwa of being used by the National Government to intimidate him with accusations that officers assigned to him assaulted a woman in Malindi.

Joho stormed the Coast regional commander's office on Thursday demanding an explanation for actions against him by the "bully government".

The national government withdrew the Mombasa Governor's security team on Thursday morning and ordered them to report back to their respective stations.

Regional police commander Francis Wanjohi confirmed they returned to Urban police division in Mombasa, where they were reportedly disarmed with immediate effect.
