Through advocate DBM Mosota, Joho has insisted that he doesn’t owe the firm President Uhuru Kenyatta any money. 

The governor last week received a letter from lawyer Donald Kipkorir acting on behalf of the firm demanding payment for the debt. 

Kipkorir, in the letter, claimed that Joho had hired the aircraft but he is yet to pay Sh2.5 million out of the Sh4.4 he agreed for the services rendered between October 7 and 17, 2016

The vocal governor, however, says he has never entered into any form of agreement with the airline operator as alleged. 

The firm has given Joho and Kirinyaga Woman Representative Purity Ngirici a grace period of 5 days to resolve the matter before it takes an unspecified action. 

Ngirici reportedly owes the firm Sh3.9 million.

“Note that if the said sums are not paid as demanded aforesaid, we have instructions to file at your risk as to incurred costs and incidentals thereto,” reads part a letter addressed to the two as quoted by Capital FM
