Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has renewed attacks on President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee administration.
Addressing the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) National Delegates Convention on Friday, the ODM deputy party leader took a sweep at President Uhuru Kenyatta accusing him impoverishing the people of the coast Kenya region.
Joho said that Uhuru and his government have denied the Coast region key development projects like he has done in his backyard and the Rift valley regions, adding that there plans to deny the coast people jobs by selling the Port of Mombasa to Arabs at over Sh26 Billion.
He further said that President Uhuru was planning to shift the Mombasa port’s operation to someone’s private land in Naivasha, a move meant to transfer proceeds from Mombasa to Nakuru County. "We will not allow that if we (NASA) get into power," he reiterated.
Joho also tore into President Uhuru Kenyatta claiming that he was behind the collapse of Sugar industries in Kenya by doing private business with neighboring country Uganda. "Milk prices are on the rise because they have sold milk to Uganda in order to get sugar in return," he stated.
Joho and President Uhuru Kenyatta have been embroiled in a public war of words in recent times and it seems like this is not about to end.
