Joho to Mt Kenya: Mkitaka kurudi upinzani miaka 50, mpigieni Ruto kura
Governor Hassan Joho has warned the Mt Kenya electorate against voting for William Ruto in the August polls. Joho says the best chance for the region to produce a president in the near future is if they vote for Raila Odinga to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta.
- Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has, for the umpteenth time, accused William Ruto of overseeing a series of corruption scandals in the Jubilee administration.
- Joho insists that only Raila has the moral high ground to be Kenya's 5th president, owing to his contribution to the country's democracy.
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho now claims that UDA presidential candidate William Ruto will make sure that his running mate Rigathi Gachagua is jailed if he clinches the presidency in the August 9, 2022 polls.
Speaking during an Azimio La Umoja One Kenya rally in Kirigiti, Kiambu County on Monday, August 1, the flamboyant governor made allegations that Ruto is plotting to replace Gachagua with someone who is not from the Mount Kenya region immediately he wins elections.
"Baada ya Hayati Jomo Kenyatta mlingoja miaka 24 ili mpate serikali. Ruto amepanga kuwa mtangoja miaka 50 bila serikali. Mpango yake ni Gachagua afungwe na achague mtu mwingine ambaye anataka na hatoki Mlima Kenya," Joho said.
Joho said that Ruto is drunk with power and might change the Constitution to extend the presidential term limits in the event he is elected president.
"Amepanga abaadilishe katiba akae hapo. Mkitaka kurudi upinzani wa kudumu basi shikaneni na William Ruto. Mkitaka serikali baadae irudi huku, basi pigieni baba na Martha kura," he added.
The High Court last week ordered Gachagua to forfeit KSh200 million to the State.
The Mathira MP is being accused of six counts of conspiracy to commit economic crimes alongside William Mwangi, Anne Nduta, Julianne Jahenda, Samuel Murimi, Grace Wambui, Lawrence Kimaru, Irene Wambui, and David Nguru.
The charges state that he fraudulently received KSh7,330,011,265 through three bank accounts registered under the name of Rigathi Gachagua, domiciled at Rafiki Micro-Finance Bank while knowing they formed part of the proceeds of crimes between 2014 and 2020.
The hearing of his case has been scheduled for September 5, 2022.
