Hassan Joho gave planned meeting with president Uhuru Kenyatta a wide berth. There has always been bad blood between Uhuru and Joho.
Uhuru repeatedly used his authority to frustrate the Mombasa governor whenever he visited Coast. In May police blocked Joho from attending the launch of SGR in Miritini which was headlined by Uhuru Kenyatta.
Joho was supposed to meet Uhuru at the governors summit in Diani, Kwali County but he ‘boycotted’ the meeting altogether.
During the summit Uhuru gave a stern warning to anyone who leads campaigns for secession. Joho has been spearheading campaigns for the secession of the coast.
“We will not entertain any language, any action that threaten our territorial integrity. We can have dialogue either individually or collectively but one thing is clear that there is a line and if you cross it then the law will deal with you,” said Uhuru.
Joho hosts Kipkorir
Hassan Joho spent time at his office instead of attending the governors summit. Flamboyant lawyer Donald Kipkorir paid the Mombasa governor a courtesy call at his office.
“Paying Courtesy Call On My Friend. After finishing my legal work here in Mombasa, I went to pay courtesy call on my friend, H.E Ali Hassan Joho and his Deputy Prof. William Kingi & County Minister for Health Hazel Koitaba …..” wrote Donald Kipkorir.
