Just in: Police explain why Hassan Joho’s security has been withdrawn

Posted: March 10, 2016 in Uncategorized

Coast Regional Commandant Francis Wanjohi has said that police officer attached to Governor Hassan Joho have been taken for training amid claims the government has withdrawn them.

It is not yet clear how many police officers were
withdrawn from Hassan Joho’s security detail and whether the move affects his bodyguards or officers who guard his homestead.

This comes barely a month after the government cracked
down on businesses associated with eh Mombasa
governor’s family.

Kenya Revenue Authority attribute the move to tax evasion and an influx of illegal goods in the country which were traced to Container Freight Stations associated with the governor’s family.

Hassan Joho has in the recent past been vocal against the Jubillee government, something his supporters attributed to the crackdown on the Container Freight Stations.

The withdrawal of security also comes under a week after
ODM triumphed over JAP in the hotly contested Malindi by-election.

Hassan Joho has also been at loggerheads with his deputy over claims she is working with the government ahead of the 2017 General Election.

In fact Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa had to
step into the row and ordered police to provide the deputy
governor with security after she received threats to her
life.
