Court stops arrest, persecution of Governor Joho

Joho on Wednesday recorded a statement with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) after the security agency summoned him over forgery claims of his certificates.

Governor Hassan Joho has obtained court orders preventing the police and the Director of Public Prosecutions Dr Keriako Tobiko from arresting, charging and prosecuting him.

High Court Judge Eric Ogolla issued the orders following Joho’s recent controversial run-ins with various state agencies including the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

The court has also barred the three State agencies from "further interfering in Governor Joho’s constitutional rights".

The court further ordered the agencies from arresting, harassing, intimidating and questioning Mr Joho on any matter concerning his academic qualifications.

Forgery claims

This came shortly after Knec said that his secondary school certificate was a forgery.

KNEC’s acting chief executive, Ms Mercy Gathigia Karogo, in a letter to the Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro, said they had established that the “purported" copy of results slip presented to the council for authentication was obtained from a forged document.

“Following your request for verification and confirmation of examination results Joho Hassan Ali results slip as per the letter referenced CID/SEC/4/4/3 dated 25th January, 2017… Joho Hassan Ali did not register nor sat for the year 1992 KCSE examination at Serani Secondary School under index number 160092024," said Ms Karogo.
