Tight security as Joho records statement
Security around the Coast regional police headquarters in Mombasa has been beefed up as Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho presented himself before the CID officers to record a statement over his KCSE certificate forgery saga.
Joho, who arrived at the police headquarters at 10.00AM Wednesday morning was accompanied by lawyers James Orengo and Amason Jeffa Kingi, who is also the Kilifi County Governor.
Supporters, journalists locked out
His supporters were sent away by police and journalists barred from accessing the CID offices and were left camping outside waiting for Joho to complete the interrogations.
On Tuesday while addressing the media in his office, Joho stated that he did not forge any certificate and was proud to have attained a mean grade of D- (minus) at Serani secondary school in 1993.
“I did not sit for KCSE examination in 1992; I did not forge any KCSE certificate,” added Joho.

He reiterated that the fight was a scheme by the Jubilee government to ensure that he does not participate in the Mombasa gubernatorial race on August 8th.
“Let me tell my opponents especially those in Jubilee that they should get prepared for a fierce battle since I will be on the ballot,” insisted the Mombasa County Chief.
He however assured his supporters to remain unbounded since all the fight will soon come to an end.
Joho is appearing before the Coast regional CID officer, Pius Macharia to record a statement over claims that he forged a KCSE certificate from Serani secondary school in 1992 to enroll for a Degree program at the University of Nairobi.
