I am ready to face my accusers, Joho tells state

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has accused the Jubilee government of witch hunt and intimidation on his alleged forgery of his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam certificate.

A furious Joho says that is he ready and prepared to answer to allegations against him.

Joho, who is ODM Party deputy leader was on Monday summoned by the DCI in Mombasa over the forgery claims. Coast DCI boss Pius Macharia had yesterday asked the Governor to appear before a Samuel Nyambengi on Tuesday at 10am.

Joho acknowledged receipt of the letter but said he had prior commitments and will honour the summons on Wednesday.

And on Tuesday while addressing a press conference in Mombasa, Governor Joho said while he will honour summons to appear before the coast criminal department but he will ask the investigating officers several hard questions.

“I am being investigated by the entire institutions in the jubilee government, why? He asked.

While he says he is proud of his D- grade but blamed some of his rivals have been using to get political mileage.

In an emotional narration to the media, Joho said he was happy with the grade he got in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams in 1993 because he had turned it around into “real success”.

“I am proud of my results. I should be an inspiration to young people on making the best of what you have,” he said.

The governor says he should be highlighted as an example that failure in Form Four is not a hindrance to success.

“The difference between me and Jubilee leaders is some have been in a comfort zone since they were born. I have struggled,” the governor lamented.

He asked, “Why would I want to forge my own certificate and in the same year get admitted in two institutions?”

The governor said he was ready to stand with the truth, “When I was in school I had to go and search for work in the evening. I’m one of those who worked and paid my own school fees,”

Joho who painted a man who have made it from a humble background, said the difference between him   and president Kenyatta is that his father may have had to issue one cheque to get him to PhD, which was not the case for him.

“Whatever it takes, I will continue. My aim as a leader is to serve the interests of citizens, not only of Mombasa but Kenya,” he concluded.
