Nairobi, March 30- Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho has canceled his much awaited Kibra rally that was set for Thursday, March 30.

The rally has been pushed to Friday, March 31 in respect to the budget that is being read today in parliament.

The rally was meant to be an address to the Jubilee government which has reportedly been harassing the governor based on his contentious academic certificates.

Joho had announced the rally after recording a statement at the CID headquarters in Mombasa.

He has been on the headlines the past week after it emerged that he might have used a faked certificate to join the gubernatorial race in 2013.

A KCSE certificate bearing his name was used to enrol him at the University of Nairobi in 2013.

KNEC revealed through a dossier that the certificate in which the governor reportedly scored a C+ was fake.

The CID have since taken samples of his handwriting and signature and will try to ascertain if indeed, the governor used a forged certificate to get into a degree program.

If found guilty of felony, the governor will not only lose the chance to defend the Mombasa seat but will also risk going behind bars for about 3-7 years depending on the sentence.
