President Kenyatta warns Ali Hassan Joho
President Kenyatta has vowed to teach Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho a lesson, accusing the county boss of pestering him and interfering with his work.
He says Mr Joho, who was put under office arrest on Monday, should focus on his work as the county boss and stop interfering with national government projects.
Police escorted the governor to his office after blocking him on Nyali Bridge as he headed to work in Mombasa town.
“He should not play with us or else we will teach him a lesson,” President Kenyatta said at Mtongwe Channel, where is re-launching a ferry, MV Likoni.
Mr Kenyatta accused Mr Joho of failing to develop Mombasa and asked him to account for Sh40 billion given to the county as equitable share.
“Mwambieni asituchezee…sisi tutamnyorosha (tell him not to joke with us… we’ll deal with him),” he has told the public at Mtongwe.

He claimed the vocal county boss and the kingpin of the opposition National Super Alliance has been a thorn in the flesh of his leadership.
He said Mr Joho should stop interfering with presidential functions or face unspecified action.
Speaking during the re-launch of Mtongwe ferry services, President Kenyatta told Mr Joho to stop following him wherever he goes.
“Why does he want to follow me? Am I his wife? He should tell people what he has done for them,” he said.
Ali Hassan Joho – Garbage
He claimed Mr Joho was trying to cling on projects initiated by the national governments because he knows he has done no development for locals.
“He only wants to boast and show off. He should start cleaning the county, which is in a mess due to garbage,” he said.
Deputy President William Ruto said the Jubilee government was not interested in political power competition but service delivery to the citizens.
He challenged the Mombasa county leadership to concentrate on serving the people, saying the city was sinking in drug menace.
Ali Hassan Joho Protest
“I ask you to elect leaders who will restore the pride and glory of Mombasa county and these leaders will come from Jubilee because Mombasa will change under Uhuru leadership, “said Mr Ruto.
During the ferry launch, the President said more vessels would be launched at the channel once two new ferries arrive in July.
Mr Joho on Monday condemned his arrest and office lock-up after police informed him that they were under instructions not to allow him out until President Kenyatta leaves Mombasa.
He protest the national government move to block him from the Mtongwe event, saying as the local governor, he has the responsibility of representing his people.

Ali Hassan Joho News Updates
Hassan Joho: I won’t be Raila Odinga’s running mate
Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has dispelled fears within CORD that he was being groomed to be Raila Odinga’s running mate in next year’s elections.
Hassan Joho said he was campaigning countrywide to strengthen CORD and popularise Raila to face Jubilee in next year’s polls but had no interest to be his running mate next year.
“I want to make it very clear that I will defend my seat as governor of Mombasa in 2017. ODM has already endorsed Raila Odinga as its presidential nominee and I urge Wiper and Ford Kenya to do so that their nominees can face Raila in the CORD nomination,” Mr Joho said.
Hassan Joho accused the Jubilee administration of allegedly marginalising some parts of the country and favouring others. “The Jubilee administration claimed it had no money to buy Waitiki farm at about Sh1.25 billion but it has just waived loans for coffee farmers. This is discriminatory and it is why I have been critical of the Jubilee administration,” Joho said. He claimed Jubilee has failed to initiate meaningful development projects in CORD strongholds.
Hassan Ali Joho Not Unfairly Targeted
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery has refuted claims that the government is unfairly targeting Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho – an allegation that the Coalitions for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) have made following the withdrawal of Joho’s security detail on Friday.
Speaking on Saturday, Nkaissery said that the government was reducing the number of security personal attached to all VIPs.
Commenting on the timing of the move, the CS said that the government had already made plans to cut down the number of bodyguards attached to VIPs, but the implementation coincidentally took place following the hotly contested Malindi by-election.
Nkaissery also told the Mombasa Governor that he must surrender all of his firearms, adding that Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu is also required to surrender his gun.
The CS critised Joho’s initial refusal to surrender his guns saying that ownership of firearms is a privilege accorded to him by the government, not a right.
“His chest thumping that guns cannot be taken away is crossing the red line… It is a privilege to own a gun, because you shouldn’t own a gun. You are not supposed to own a gun because government protects you, therefore the privilege shouldn’t be abused” he said.
The withdrawal of Joho’s security and Nkaissery’s remarks has continued to attract sharp criticism from leaders allied to CORD, with many claiming that the Jubilee government is out on a revenge mission following their loss at the polls.
Adding his voice to the debate, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetagula accused the government of putting opposition leaders in danger by withdrawing their security detail.
Orange Democratic Party Chairman John Mbadi has however claimed that the ongoing controversy is an elaborate smokescreen, staged by the Jubilee government to divert attention “electoral theft”.
“The charade championed by Joseph Nkaissery and Nelson Marwa is also meant to divert attention from Jubilee’s electoral theft in Kericho and its failed attempt to steal elections in Malindi,” read Mbadi’s statement.
The ODM leader went further to state that the ongoing debate is meant to divert public attention from discussions about graft.
“The current campaign of intimidation of key Opposition politicians including ODM Deputy Party Leader Mr Ali Hassan Joho, Kilifi governor Amason Kingi and a host of our MPs is clearly intended to divert national debate from the grand thefts at the National Youth Service, the Youth Enterprise and Development Fund, Huduma Centres and of Euro Bond,” he added.
Joho’s body guards are linked to allegations of assaulting a woman who was accused of bribing voters during the parliamentary by elections in Malindi.
The incident is still under investigation.
