Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has become the latest politician to accuse Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho for allegedly giving youth at the Coast hard drugs.
Jumwa has for years been close to Joho until recently when the lawmaker was kicked out of Orange Demographic Movement (ODM) party for disciplinary issues.
Speaking on Saturday at Msabaha in Malindi where she addressed journalists after a burial ceremony, Jumwa said Joho has been giving drugs to youth so as to cause "uhasama ndani ya Malindi" (cause mayhem in Malindi).
Jumwa compared Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi to Joho saying Kingi is a leader who deserved respect unlike Joho who goes around "akibweka bweka" (barking), and use youth wrongly after 'giving them drugs'.
"Kutuma tuma watu akishawalisha unga halafu wanaenda wakisimama sijui Joho aheshimiwe," said Jumwa.
In August 2018, Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi also raised the same allegations on Joho. He said Joho should not talk about leadership of the country or corruption until he stops drug business at the Coast.
However, Joho has been daring those saying his a drug dealer to challenge him in court.
