Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has been very loyal to former Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga. The second-term governor has fought for Odinga tooth and nail as he sought to become the President of this nation.

Joho was among the leaders who were ready to do anything, to ensure Raila ascends to power and 2022 will be the time Raila needs to reward his loyal son. 

A son who stood with him even when others deserted him at Uhuru Park when he decided to take the controversial oath of office that saw him almost arrested for what many termed as treason.

Joho was among the leaders who were present during the event. He maintained that Raila had won the election and he deserves nothing short of power.

When former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, and Ford Kenya Leader Moses Wetangula were nowhere to be seen when Raila needed them most, Joho braved threats and teargas all the way to Uhuru Park to see Raila ‘take over power’.

Joho has hinted at contesting for the top seat in 2022. Raila should be kind enough to reward him by asking his people to vote for him when that time comes.
