Governor Hassan Joho now declares he will vie for the Presidency

Joho castigated the Jubilee Government for the notion that anyone who wants to clinch the presidency will have to wait till 2032.

President Uhuru Kenyatta with Mombasa governor Hassan Joho at Shika Adabu grounds Likoni, where Uhuru was issuing title deeds to squatters of the controversial 930-acre Waitiki farm.

Speaking during a rally in Taita Taveta County, Joho castigated the Jubilee Government for the notion that anyone who wants to clinch the presidency will have to wait till 2032.

This follows the declaration by the Jubilee Party that President Uhuru Kenyatta will be re-elected in 2017 and finish his 10 years in power after which Deputy President William Ruto will take over and serve as President for two terms that will end in 2032.

“I want to say it here that with God’s help in 2022 we will fight it out with them,” Joho said.

He claimed the government was hell bent on frustrating him and devising plans meant to bring him down.

Joho said he was a man of the people and had a huge following and does not depend on a single person but only God and the strength of the people.

“This time round we will reach our destination,” he declared before a cheering crowd.

President Kenyatta feud

Joho has been involved in a series of confrontations with President Uhuru Kenyatta on matters affecting the coastal people.

The latest was earlier this week, when Joho was stopped by security officers from attending President Uhuru Kenyatta's launch of Mtongwe Ferry services.

The President later said that he is not Joho’s wife for him to be constantly following him around whenever he is at the Coast.

Joho is on record saying that his life is in danger after President Uhuru Kenyatta threatened him.

This is after the Head of State, during the launch of Mtongwe ferry services on Monday, warned the Governor that he would deal with him if he continued interfering with his work.
