Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) youth from Kitui County on Monday took to the streets in protest of Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho after a section of leaders accused him of being involved in drug trafficking. 

The second-term governor has been on the limelight for allegedly being behind drug business as claimed by Deputy President William Ruto’s allies from the Rift Valley region. 

Led by the regional Youth Leader Farid Bakari, the team faulted Ruto’s allies of what they termed as character assassination following the accusations.

They warned Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi against linking the county boss to the illegal business. 

They also urged Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa to respect Joho.

Joho has reportedly written a letter to Interpol seeking to clear his name from the suspected drug barons in the country.

He has maintained that he is not associated with the business amid the claims. 

Joho, also ODM deputy leader, has asked the politicians linking him to the trade to apologize.

It all began when Joho revealed that ODM leader Raila Odinga had asked his brigades to ensure that Ruto doesn’t ascend to power when that time comes.

Joho has insisted that Ruto doesn’t deserve Presidency because he is corrupt.
