Mombasa goverbnor has been put on spot over his Sh390 million Million for the construction of an official residence. A day after Senator Omar made the claims, more than 10 Members of County Assembly (MCAs) have made shocking revelations on the tribulations that face the Mombasa Governor.
The MCAs claimed that Mr Joho had resorted to using his private offices at Prima building in Kizingo for official duties.
It also emerged that while his counterparts have been provided with state-of-the-art official residences, Joho continues to live in his private residence.
The MCAs were responding to complaints from Senator Omar who had said that it was not right for a Governor to live in a palace worth Sh390 Million, “while majority of the citizens live in slums.”
The MCAs termed the comments by Omar, who is eyeing the Governor’s seat in 2017, as “untrue and propaganda”.
They, however, confirmed that the County Government was spending an undisclosed amount of money on the renovation of a new building that will be used as an administrative office for the governor.
