Joho Rubbishes Raila-Uhuru Handshake

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho on Friday rubbished the impact Uhuru-Raila handshake would have on his future political ambition.

Speaking for the first time in public since his return from France, the Mombasa County boss noted that his quest for the presidency in 2022 is unshaken despite the recent reunion between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his ‘brother’ Raila Odinga.

“Handshake or no handshake, I will still vie for the presidency in 2022,” he exclaimed.

The ODM deputy party leader added that the pact between the two leaders will also not stop him from addressing pertinent issues affecting his County residents.

Joho further asserted that nothing will stop him from speaking his mind about the ills affecting Mombasa residents including marginalisation.

“This country belongs to us all and no Kenyan is better than the other,” Joho stated.

The Mombasa boss also dismissed DP Ruto’s remarks opposing a change in the constitution.

“Nobody owns the Constitution, it belongs to the people of Kenya and if they want it to be changed, so be it as long as it is in their interest,” declared Joho.

Last week the DP announced that he is against the creation of new political positions by changing the law, claiming that the country should focus on development rather than the creation of positions to suit individual interests.

Ruto was referring to recent reports on a bill by Tiaty MP William Kamket that is proposing the establishment of the office of a powerful prime minister.
