Kabogo Warns Joho and Nanok to Respect President Uhuru Kenyatta

Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has sent a sensational warning to his Mombasa counterpart Ali Hassan Joho regarding public attacks on President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kabogo, who was addressing a rally in Kenyatta’s hometown of Gatundu demanded that Joho must respect the President, adding that the Opposition governors had formed a habit of disrespecting the Presidency.

“I want to send a strong message to these two people. One is Governor Ali Joho. Leave the President Uhuru alone! I know where you live, and I am sending this stern message to you. Joho, leave his Excellency the President alone. Leave Uhuru Kenyatta alone. Respect the President,” Kabogo stated.

He also warned Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok, who recently had a public spat with President Kenyatta in his county, to be respectful to the head of state.

On Monday, the Mombasa Governor was subjected to a dramatic incident after he was physically blocked from attending President Kenyatta's function at Mtongwe ferry.

The Mombasa Governor would later confirm that he had intended to use the function to criticise the President whom he accused of lying on the funds the national government had disbursed to his county.
