Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho was subjected to tears on Tuesday when his two containers, Autoport and Portside, were closed down by the GSU officers.
The officers stormed the buildings and ordered everyone out before they closed the containers without consulting the management.
This comes two days after Joho obtained a court order restraining anyone from interfering with his business, but the officers explained that they had been ordered by a ‘bigger’ office to close down the business with immediate effect.
“This is a directive from above. Nobody should dispute”, said one of the officers.
