Mombasa Governor Joho on Wednesday launched fresh attacks on President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto during his address at Bomas of Kenya.

In his speech at Opposition parties’ delegates meeting, Governor Hassan Joho hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta for apparently seeking to frustrate him by withdrawing his security guards, saying he will not relent in his effort to speak up against Jubilee’s apparent failures.

Governor Joho whose security detail was withdrawn on Sunday, two days after his criticism of President Uhuru, said he does not need government protection noting that he is protected by God and the people.

“I want to tell them to keep their security; I am protected by God and you the people who I am fighting for. And even if they kill me, the struggle against the Jubilee’s misdeeds will continue,” said Governor Joho.

Last week, the Mombasa Governor criticised President Kenyatta for launching the Buxton footbridge last week terming it a PR gimmick aimed at hoodwinking Kenyans.

And in his speech on Wednesday, Governor Joho defended his utterances saying he had no apologies to make for telling the truth.

“Some people have told me to apologise to President Uhuru for telling him off during the Buxton footbridge launch, but I will not do that because I told him the truth.

“They wanted me to go and clap as he (Uhuru) launches a project that was initiated by CORD leader Raila Odinga during his time as Prime Minister; that I cannot do,” said Governor Joho.

He called on Jubilee to show what they have done in the four years they have been in office saying most of the projects launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta were started by the previous government of Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga.

Joho also hit out at Deputy President William Ruto accusing him of corruption and grabbing of public land.

Other speakers at the delegates meeting, including Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, Kanu’s Nick Salat and CORD leader Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka also criticized Jubilee for failing to fulfill their promises to Kenyans.

The leaders accused Jubilee government of engaging in corruption saying they will work together to defeat President Uhuru.

The party leaders reaffirmed their commitment to form one coalition that will face Jubilee in August elections.
