, MOMBASA, Kenya, Oct 5 – Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s prayers to stop his arrested and prosecution for alleged forgery of his academic papers have been granted by the High Court.
Judge Erick Ogola says the Director of Public Prosecutions, Inspector General and Directorate of Criminal Investigations violated his constitutional rights over the matter.
In his judgement Ogola says the DCI misused their State powers to abuse, breach and violate Joho’s rights.
Ogola says the security agents have dragged their feet in investigating Joho’s academic papers.
He noted that security agents abused their powers in withdrawing his security and freezing his bank accounts.
The judge questioned the timing of the investigation considering that there were similar complaints lodged in 2013 by the same person.
