Following the closure of two container freight stations belonging to Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho’s family last week, Matungulu MP Stephen Mule has told the Jubilee Government to stop harassing the coastal leader.

Speaking during a mass at St Josephs Catholic Church Katheka in Matungulu constituency, the MP said that Joho was being targeted by Jubilee because of his support for the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) party.

The MP echoed earlier remarks made by CORD leader Raila Odinga who accused the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) of politically frustrating the Mombasa Governor by attacking his businesses.

Responding to the accusations, KRA Commissioner John Njiraini defend the action saying that it was in line with the streamlining operation on the CFSS in order to ensure compliance with new guidelines.

The Matungulu legislator further accused the Jubilee administration of frustrating Secretary General for Kenya Parents Association, Musa Nduda. The MP said that Jubilee was intimidating Nduda so that the government could continue their “stealing tricks”.

Mr. Mule praised Nduda for the work he has done in championing for the rights of parents as the leader of the Parent’s association.

Addressing the same congregation, Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama criticised the government, stating that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s term has been marred by numerous graft scandals.

“Nobody is above the law and Kenyans are tired of money being stolen every other day. This is poor leadership,” he said.

Mr. Muthama also accused Inspector General Joseph Boinett of harassing Machakos residents through the County Government.  The senator threatened to take the police boss to court should the police harassment continue.

The police harassment allegations were raised following demos in the county over increased business fees.
