President Uhuru Kenyatta and his number two William Ruto have once again bashed Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho saying he had turned to abusing the former after failing to deliver promises he made to Mombasa residents.
During a Jubilee rally at Jomvu Primary School in Jomvu sub county, the Head of State said the Governor had failed to clear garbage within the city which have turned into mountains.
“Your leader here has resorted to abusing me instead of delivering service to the people of Mombasa. He thinks by abusing me he is being a hero. But I tell him that abusing me will not give me sleepless nights. I will eat and sleep soundly,” Uhuru said referring to Governor Joho.
“He can continue to abuse me day and night but that will not worry me. I am telling him that being a hero is acquired through doing work for the people.” The President added.
UhuRuto rubbished the claims by the Governor that the Jubilee government was planning to transfer the port of Mombasa to Naivasha.
“How can we as Jubilee carry all the ocean water from Mombasa to Naivasha? It’s only God who can do that,” Uhuru noted.
On his side, Ruto said that Governor Joho should go back to school because education in Kenya was now free. “He cannot understand that we cannot transfer the port of Mombasa to Naivasha because of his questionable education.” He said.
According to the DP, the government was just building an industrial zone in Naivasha noting that such other facilities will be pit up in Voi, Kisumu and other towns.
The two campaigned for Jubilee candidates Suleiman Shahbal (Governor), Hazel Katana (Senator), Amina Abdalla (Woman Rep), Karisa Nzai (Jomvu MP) and Masoud Mwahima (Likoni MP) among others.
Kwale Woman Rep Zainab Chidzuga, Taveta MP Naomi Shaban and Tourism CS Najib Balala joined other leaders at the rally.
