A video is making rounds on social media of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho driving himself around after his security detail was withdrawn from him.
He asked the government to keep the bodyguards it took from him. “I believe in protection from God. No one can cause my death if my day to meet my maker has not arrived,” he said.
Joho who spoke during the launch of the National Super Alliance, NASA on Wednesday, January 11, said he no longer needed the guards, that he had the best day of his life driving himself around without any protection from the police.
This is happening just days after the government withdrew his security together with that of Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, shortly after Joho gave President Uhuru Kenyatta a public dressing down in Mombasa during the launch of the project.
Joho openly asked Uhuru to commission new Jubilee projects instead of riding on ones initiated by the grand coalition government.
The government however came to its defense saying politics should not be read in the move. It noted the reason for the withdrawal of bodyguards was because local security agents were re-organising themselves.
Kilifi governor Amason Kingi is also making do without private protection after he also criticised President Uhuru just like his Mombasa counterpart.
Reports have it that the government sent new security details to the two Governors, but they rejected them.
