Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho in trouble over personal M-PESA statements that were sent from the revenue collection administration. According to the petition made by Mr Patrick Kabundu, there were allegations that the revenue collection points sent directly to governors personal number, funds meant for development.

“All revenue collected by the county from the courts is managed in strict adherence to the provisions of law and finally ends up in the County Revenue Fund Account held at the Central Bank of Kenya,” Mr Joho said through lawyer Paul Buti. 

The petitioners had told the court that the revenue was channelled to personal M-Pesa accounts linked to the administration.

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has sought the dismissal of a petition in which the petitioners want the county inspectorate department scrapped and have challenged revenue collection from the municipal courts.

The governor has termed the petition by three residents, Mr Patrick Kabundu, Mr Mutuma Caleb Mwiti and Mr Chichi Kimani unsubstantiated, baseless and lacking in evidence and which should be expunged from court records.

The County government have so far denied such allegations claiming that the trios are only seeking attention from the public.  The governor through his lawyer has denounced such allegations and prompted the petitioners to seek fresh evidence or throw away the petition.
