Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has urged Police Commissioner Joseph Boinnet to reinstate Joho’s security as the Governor awaits Nkaissery’s decision.
Sonko argued that should anything happen to Joho, Jubilee administration will bear the blame, which will not augur well for them.
“it is wrong to withdraw bodyguards of any Governor. I kindly and humbly appeal to the CS Interior Hon. Naissery and our good IG MR. BOINNET to allow the Mombasa Governor and his Kilifi counterpart to have bodyguards of their choice as they await the fate of the withdrawn bodyguards over claims of assault in Malindi during the by-election. Reasons Should anything bad happen to them (Lord forbid), the blame will be squarely put on us the Jubilee Administration”, said the senator.
Joho is currently walking without all his bodyguards. He has also been ordered to surrender all his guns, but has appealed against the order.
The Governor has blamed Jubilee administration of witch hunt, citing ODM’s big win at Malindi as the major reason.
