Governor Joho with former Kiambu County boss William Kabogo

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho hosted former Kiambu County boss William Kabogo in Mombasa on Tuesday.

In a post on his Twitter account, the Mombasa Governor said that the two had discussed matters of National Unity without giving further details.

Earlier on Joho had said that he was pleased with the fruits of the handshake since many important projects in his county had kicked off.

Conference calls with Uhuru

Joho said that they have had conference calls with President Uhuru Kenyatta on various matters including the Kibarani beautification project.

Governor Joho reiterated that his good relationship with the head of State is due to the handshake with his party leader, Raila Odinga.

After the handshake, it was easy for me to engage the national government. The President has put me on video call several times, with several ministers, asking about Kibarani. He is following it up," said Joho.

"Principal and Cabinet secretaries have visited this place. We are working with the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) to change this place," he added.

Transforming Mombasa

He further said that when he announced the closure of the dumpsite President Kenyatta called him immediately asking if he could be of help.

The governor pointed out the advantage of working with partners such as the government, the Environment ministry, the private sector and Nema.

"We can each contribute positively. The project is taking shape, and in another six months you will not believe this is Kibarani," Joho stated.

"We are also consulting on producing energy since there is a lot of methane down here. We will transform this area," he added.
