Hassan Joho must be laughing wherever he is – President Uhuru Kenyatta blocked him from attending Mtongwe ferry re-launch but now the Jubilee flagship project is turning out to be real white elephant.

President Uhuru caused a stir when he commissioned the resumption of Mtongwe Ferry services in Mtongwe, Mombasa County on March 13th 2017 – he blocked Joho from attending the function and told him to stop following him around because he wasn’t his wife.

Well, part of the landing structure at the Mtongwe ferry channel broke off and fell into the ocean barely two months after President Uhuru re-launched the ferry services.

Two pillars that supported the ferry ramp were dislodged by strong tides on Tuesday night causing the collapse of the structure.

No one was injured as the ferry serving the channel – MV Likoni – was not in operation at the time at the time of the accident.
