Blogger Robert Alai has once more come out to claim that Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho is busy fooling Raila Odinga and his Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.
According to Alai, president Uhuru helped Joho win his second term in 2017 by making him popular indirectly.
Alai cited instances where Joho could storm presidential functions in Mombasa then which according to him were meant to make him popular then embark on the journey of rocking ODM from within after retaining his second term.
Alai also cited the 2013 Mombasa elections where elected Luo MCAs under ODM ticket in Mombasa were almost 13 with the speaker coming from the same community, only for Joho to be used later by the state to finish the strength of ODM in the coastal region.
“Do you know that in 2013 alone, luo MCAs were almost 13 in Mombasa unlike now when they are merely 2 or 3. Luo MCAs even had a speaker then but Joho was used by the state to finish not only Luo politicians in Mombasa but also the ODM party.” He said.
To succeed, Alai detailed that Joho first pocketed Raila in a bid to deny these politicians who could defend him (Raila) a voice.
With regards to the recent Msambweni by-elections, the blogger added that governor Joho was secretly working with the state to incite the voters not to vote for ODM candidate.
“I can tell you for a fact that Joho was fully involved in sabotaging ODM just like Malala was used to fool ODM prior to losing Matungu seat to make the party a luo affair.” He said.
At the same time, Alai reiterated his earlier sentiments that Uhuru is playing psychological warfare with the opposition leader by staging wars with the deputy president while in real sense he is campaigning and making him more popular through the side shows.
