Uhuru’s plan to destroy Joho’s political career exposed

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to bar him from contesting during the August 8 polls.

Through his lawyer, Senator James Orengo, he alleged that his problems began after Uhuru vowed to teach him a lesson.

Orengo stated that Joho’s forgery degree case was initiated by Kenyatta’s key allies to ensure he is barred from contesting in the upcoming polls.

"The utterances by Kenyatta directed to Joho, in March cannot be taken lightly, because the number of cases popping up from KRA, Kenya National Examinations Council, DPP and AG are all meant to find a basis to stop Joho from running for governorship," Mr Orengo told the High court on Thursday.

During a recent tour of the Coast, Kenyatta warned Joho that he would teach him a lesson if he continued interfering with his work and urged him to focus on helping Coast people.

Later on, KNEC’s acting chief executive, Ms Mercy Gathigia Karogo, in a letter to the DCI boss Ndegwa Muhoro, said that Joho had faked his KCSE results to obtain admission at the University of Nairobi.

“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. “Therefore, the purported copy of the year 1992 KCSE examination results slip presented to KNEC for verification purposes, is obtained from a forged document," Ms Karogo said in her letter dated January 26, 2017," Ms Karogo stated quoting records in the KNEC database.
