Joho under siege as KNEC says his academic papers are fake

Hassan Joho’s tenure as Mombasa Governor has come under disrepute after the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) declared that his secondary school certificate is a fake.

The county boss who has been in the headlines for his numerous verbal spats with President Uhuru Kenyatta risks being disqualified from defending his seat in August if his degree certificates are invalidated.

KNEC acting chief executive Mercy Karogo in a letter to Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss Ndegwa Muhoro says that the copy of results slip presented to the council for authentication ahead of the 2013 elections was obtained from a forged document.

“Following your request for verification and confirmation of examination results Joho Hassan Ali results slip as per the letter referenced CID/SEC/4/4/3 dated 25th January, 2017… Joho Hassan Ali did not register nor sat for the year 1992 KCSE examination at Serani Secondary School under index number 160092024,” the letter reads.
