The Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has answered all the answers that the Jubilee supporters wanted as claimed. The Governor narrated a story of how he started from primary school to date with references.  Accompanied by his school mates and the former Serani secondary Principal at his county offices, the Governor outlines what the Jubilee government wants at the coast as they tried to bribe him last year.

The Governor shocked the people who were present by telling them about the first Job he did as he was attending school with his brother Abu Joho. He rubbished claims that the ODM was seeking to get a new Gubernatorial aspirant in Mombasa and said he will be in the race. The people of Mombasa will determine their governor in the polls.

“From right when I was in primary school I supported my family in selling onions. And by the way, I had to wait for a while to raise the fees for admission to Serani Secondary School and when I did, at that young age, I’d leave school and look for work. For those who do not know, I worked as a porter here at the Old Port and I used to be paid Sh80 after loading every truck from those yachts that come from Somalia; carrying either scrap or TVs, whatever the cargo that was imported.”

“I take pride, really, as a Kenyan to be what I am today. I want to inspire other Kenyans that I can’t go through all I went through to put myself through school, get a D minus then give up and it becomes the end of the road for me. I’ve come from far yes, and I have faith I’ll go far. That is why you hear me all the time saying I have ambitions of being the President of this republic because my God has made it possible for me to be what I am today.”

“Others will say oh, explain the D minus. I take pride in my results in the year 1993 and I should be an inspiration to other Kenyans that not doing well in Form Four, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road for you, you can turn that around and that is what I have successfully been able to achieve. Any serious leader would want to use that to inspire the young generation who never made it for one reason or another. So as I stand here today, yes, I am a holder of a D minus but I have been able to change that into real progress. And so that you know, even now I am a student of an MBA.”

“And I urge other Kenyans if you did not do well in your secondary education that is not the end of the world for you. Most youths get frustrated and end up murdering themselves because of failing. People from poor backgrounds are worse and I feel them that is why I will always fight for the people of Mombasa no matter what it takes.”

Tomorrow the Governor will go to the CID headquarters to answer questions about how he managed to go to the university with a poor grade. Although today he showed the gathering that he has a diploma and certificate of Business Management. The KNEC have verified his D- certificate as Valid. Tomorrow will have a press briefing after the Police meeting. [no-sidebar]
