Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has accused the government of waylaying plans to occasion him harm and given the Inspector General of Police 24 hours to respond.

He has also written a demand letter to the IG Joseph Boinett to give him a valid reason why his security was withdrawn.

Through his lawyer Dennis Mosota, Joho says that the actions to withdraw his security details are actuated by malice, bad faith and intended to achieve ulterior motives with a singular objective of settling political scores and perhaps laying groundwork to occasion him harm.

He is demanding that his security detail be reinstated immediately or in the alternative guarantee him total safety and security from eminent danger or harm.

He has given Boinett 24 hours to respond to the letter or file a suit at the court.

According to a letter seen by Nairobi Times and copied to State House and Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa, Joho is demanding unequivocal written assurance that the IG will bear full responsibility incase anything happens to him.

“Please note that, you did not notify our client in sufficient time of your intention to withdraw his security detail and at the time of your action he was out of the country and did not have time to arrange for alternative security,” wrote lawyer Mosota.

Mr Joho the said action was intended to embarrass and make him a subject of public ridicule and thus eroding his inherent dignity as a popularly elected leader with a broad political mandate from the people of Mombasa and members of the Orange Democratic Movement Party.

State House through its Spokesperson, one Manoah Esipisu, in a media briefing confirmed that Joho security detail had been withdrawn and suggested that the state was aware of the withdrawal and termed it as a ‘’normal’’ restructuring and re-organisation exercise.

While appearing in a local media house IG Boinnet defended the actions deflecting the responsibility to the Regional Police Commander Nelson Marwa.
