Joho's daring message to Boinett
Joho is not stranger to the law and has had several interactions with the Police.
Joho shoots the hip, speaks his mind and never misses an opportunity to face up to Authority whenever he feels aggrieved.
He is also not stranger to the law either, he has a pending case on his academic papers and their family owned business has had many running with the law.
It is his interactions with the police that is however the intense.
Early this year during the launch of the Mtongwe ferry in Mombasa by President Uhuru Kenyatta the governor almost exchanged fists fight with a GSU officer after he was stopped and harassed by GSU and Recce police officers from attending the launch.
“There is nothing you can do to me Mnanitisha tisha nini hapa, mimi siogopi, huyu ni mtu mzima ongea kama mtu mzima mnanifukuza kama mwizi nimeibia nani mimi, mnanitisha tisha hapa na hizi binduki zenu, mwanaume amezaliwa siku moja na atakufa siku moja vitisho havifanyi kazi , siogopi kufa mimi” an emotional Joho said before he boarded into his vehicle heading to his office where he was detained by police officers.
The fierce governor was at Nasa final push rally at Uhuru Park and had message to Police Inspector General, Joseph Boinett and the entire Kenyan police force.
“My message to the police who were sent yesterday including the inspector general and the Kenyan army is we will hold you individually into account for anything that happens on August 8”
“wewe polisi, wewe mwanajeshi, wewe mtu wa intelligence mshahara wako unatoka kwa Wakenya, polisi hafai kuwa broker wa Jubilee, Polisi ni mtumishi wa Wakenya” Translated to: “You police officers, you Army officers, you the intelligence officers you salary comes from Kenyans and you cannot be Jubilee brokers, a police officer is a public servant”
“nataka niombe polisi wazuri, kwa wale wanajeshi wazuri nyinyi jiwekeni kando na watu wachache wabaya ambao wanataka kuwatumia vibaya” Translated to: “I want to request good police officers, I want to request good army officers to keep away from the few bad officers who want to use them for evil deeds”
