BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,29TH MARCH 2017-Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho on Wednesday recorded a statement at Mombasa DCI headquarters over claims he posses forged KCSE certificate..
He disowned the slip under probe, insisting he scored D- (minus) during the 1993 examinations at Serani secondary school.
The officers are interested in a result slip issued in Joho’s name, claiming he sat for his KCSE at Serani high school in 1992.
Detectives at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations said they are almost finalising the probe into how Joho gained entry into UoN.
On Monday, the school defended Joho saying the governor was their bonafide student.
Of contention is not whether he was at the school but how he ended up listing for classes at UoN with a forged result slip.
The governor, on the other hand, said he is ready to defend himself in court over the allegations.
He accused the Jubilee administration of intimidating his because of political stance. Joho is ODM deputy party leader.
Leaders among them Siaya Senator and lawyer James Orengo, woman representative Mishi Mboko, Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi and ODM secretary general Agnes Zani accompanied Joho to the DCI.
Kingi accused the government of applying selective justice in Joho’s case.
