Governor Joho rushes to seek police help after armed men raid his home

Joho reported that six men armed with AK 47s were seen at his Nyali home which is currently undergoing renovation for over an hour on Wednesday morning.

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho outside the Coast provincial headquarters after recording a statement.

Joho held a meeting with the police led by Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa whom he has clashed with severally since he assumed his position as county boss in 2013.

The governor requested the police to send their intelligence officers along with sniffer dogs to search his residence and find out what the unknown armed men were doing there and possible if they had left anything harmful or destructive at the premises.

“These people might have left anything at my place including weapons or even a bomb that could harm people. They could have even planted illegal things in an attempt to frame me,” Joho said.

The police assured Joho that they would send officers to his residence and investigate the matter.

Not be cowed

The governor said that the incident will not intimidate him and he will proceed with his planned series of meetings and rallies in Voi and Lamu in the coming days.

“I have not come here to request for extra security detail because I do not live in fear of my life because it is in God’s hands and everything that might happen to me will be according to His will,” Joho told the press outside the provincial headquarters.

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has now claimed 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.

"Joho should stop following me. I am not his wife. He should come here and explain what he has done for this country... He should not play with us, if he plays with us we will teach him a lesson," the Head of State affirmed.

Speaking on Tuesday, Joho alleged that the president's warning was a direct threat to him.

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