Raila warns Uhuru after attacking Joho

ODM leader Raila Odinga has sprung a biting attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta after he threatened Governor Ali Hassan Joho.

Uhuru and Raila

“These bad manners will not be entertained. We will stand with Joho come rain or shine. Joho is not just any ordinary person. He is a leader elected by his people.” Raila told the Star.

He went on to say that Uhuru’s remarks and behaviour over the last week including an attack on Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok were un-presidential and he needed to be reined in.

“This behavior by the President needs prayers from Kenyans. He is not just abusing his powers but he is demeaning the institution of the presidency. Something is very wrong.” Raila said.

These remarks come about a week after Uhuru and Joho clashed in Mombasa after the Governor was stopped at Nyali Bridge by GSU officers and barred from attending the president’s re-launch of Mtongwe Ferry Services.

An incident that led to Uhuru telling Joho "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."

A comment that was interpreted as a threat by the Sultan of Mombasa officially known as Joho "The President said he will deal with me. This means anything can happen to me. It is a direct threat and it is not easy to handle a direct threat from a head of state." Mombasa governor told the Standard.
