In a ruling presided over by Justice Hedwig Ong'undi, Mr Joho was restricted from accessing his six accounts at CFC Stanbic bank, until the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) completes conducting tax assessment.

“The order for preservation of the monies will last for a period of 30 days,” she stated.

The order was made after KRA went to court to bar the Mombasa boss from transferring, withdrawing or depositing money in the four Kenya shillings accounts and two US dollars ones.

Detective Justus Kiuvu, who is at the centre of the probe, mentioned that since 2013, Joho had filed his tax returns as nil yet he has been earning an income.

"Despite declaring nil tax, he is the registered owner of two high-end motor vehicle – rolls Royce KBR 001R and Porches Cayenne KCG 001J,” Kiuvu’s affidavit reads.

The investigator added that Joho’s last tax returns were for the years 2008-2013 which only amounted to Sh1000.

According to KRA regulations, fraudulent accounting is punishable with a general penalty of a fine or jail term not exceeding three years.

This comes at a time the Mombasa Governor  is facing probe over his KCSE result slip which he has been accused of forging.

However, Joho has since rubbished the claims highlighting that his woes were a scheme by the Jubilee Government to 'harass and intimidate' him.
