Joho: I will go where my people are


Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has said that he will go where his people are.
Joho, who was addressing residents after leading an ODM delegates meeting in Voi on Thursday said that he was only interested in going where his people are, and that the President and his Deputy should not dictate what Coastal leaders should do.
On Monday, the Governor was barred from attending the Mtongwe ferry launch.
Najua pale ulipo lakini sitaki kuja na sitakuja. Najua pale ikulu ipo lakini sitakuja na sitaki kuja. Lakini nitakuja pale watu wangu wako (I know where you are but will not come there. I know where state house is but will not come there. I will go where my people are)”.
He said that he does not fear anyone since it is God who gives and takes one’s life.
He appealed to Taita Taveta residents to stick to the opposition and vote out Jubilee government on August 8th .
“Let’s not be shaken by the powerful people who only use state funds to campaign for themselves. Let us stick to our stand of fighting for our people’s rights,” added Joho.
The Governor said that he has never insulted anyone and will pursue his dream of retaining the Mombasa gubernatorial seat.
Kama kuwatetea watu wangu ni vibaya basi shauri yako…sijatukana mtu na wala siwezi kutusi mtu. Mkinitusi mimi nitawaangalia tu…lakini ntaendelea kuwatetea watu wangu. (If defending my people is wrong then that is your own problem. I have not insulted anyone and insulting me will not stop me from defending my people),” added the Governor.
He was responding to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s comments on Monday when he said that Joho should not follow him up as if he was his ‘wife’.
