Joho is a rebel without a cause, Uhuru dares governor to show his achievements
Uhuru instead blamed Joho for incompetency saying there is nothing to show for the billions of shillings devolved to the coastal county.
Uhuru challenged Joho to enumerate his achievement in Mombasa before resorting to insulting him and his government’s projects.
"Tell the residents what you have done with the over Sh40 billion transferred to Mombasa county that's enough! there is no need of you going rounds everyday insulting the president and the deputy president thinking you would be seen as the sultan of Mombasa" Uhuru told Joho.
While speaking at Tononoka grounds during a Jubilee rally where later he received leaders who had defected from ODM Uhuru added Joho was repeating a tired old script and Kenyans especially Coast residents would not be hoodwinked this time round.
Contrarily to Joho claims of Mombasa county being sidelined, the president announced that the government has released over Sh 40 billion to the Mombasa county government since it come to power.
A few days ago he made the same remarks in Turkana county where he criticised Turkana Governor Joseph Nanok, saying the arid county had little to show for more than Kshs 40 billion of devolved funds disbursed over the last four years, adding it was a shameful example of poor service delivery to Kenyans.
Uhuru chided the ‘sultan of Mombasa’ for trying to pull a first one on him after the sultan rushed to Kongowea market last Friday to allocate traders stalls in the new retail centre yet his government is the one that built the centre at a cost of over Sh400 million.
“After six months instead of having left traders to do business there, it is only now that he is rushing there because elections are near. What have you been doing with the market for six months?” said Uhuru.
Uhuru accused Joho of behaving like a 'socialite' simply seeking cheap publicity at the expense of the government.
“The governor, when we go to the port, he stands next to us wanting to take photos with us while we launch the expansion of the port. When we go to roads, he is there, he wants to be with us,” Uhuru said.
