Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers today extended their investigations onto the academic credentials of embattled Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho to Tom Mboya Primary School, where he is reported to have attended his early education.
Detectives from the commission visited the school at Buxton area, where they obtained certified copies of certificates to ascertain the governor’s enrollment and completion of studies at the school.
However, the governor while addressing person living with disability at Mbaraki hall rubbished the investigations as a waste of time saying this will not stop his political ambitions.
“Don’t be worried, I am told that they went to the primary school and I hear next they will be going to nursery school where I studied and the next day they will go and check my birth certificate because there are people who are saying I was not born in Kenya. Let them continue,but we will forge forward,” he said.
This comes shortly after the anti-graft body wrote to the school seeking specific information about Joho’s educational background.
In a letter dated March 28, addressed to the school’s Head Master and signed by Commission’s Deputy CEO Michael Mubea the commission demanded to be provided with a raft of details including certified copies of certificates to ascertain about the governor’s enrollment and completion at the school.
