Governor Joho is a man under siege and by now I bet he has learnt his lesson that you just don’t wrestle with a bull and leave unhurt.
He started rattling the government and now his life has become a living hell. It started off months ago KRA raided Portside Freight Terminal, a company associated with governor Joho demanding over 90 million in owed taxes between 2008 and 2012.
He has managed to fight off this with the high court barring KRA from retrieving from this money. It seems he’s far from winning as the same court yesterday, 30th March 2017 barred from withdrawing over KSh 37 million in his bank accounts.
The order was issued by Justice Hedwig Ong’udi who said the money will be preserved for 30 days pending assessment for taxation purposes and the move is reportedly to stop the governor from transferring the money to frustrate the recovery of the taxes.
While all this happening, Joho is still fighting forgery allegations as it emerged he might have used fake certificated to get admitted in university and later on become the governor of Mombasa County.
If he emerges from all of this then he will have truly earned the title of Sultan.
