Petititon challenging Joho’s degree struck out

A petition challenging Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho’s degree certificate has been dismissed  by Mombasa High Court.

The three judge bench which included  Justices Christine Meoli, Edward Muriithi and Martin Muya ruled that the petition was premature and did not exhaust mechanisms to determine if his degree was valid.

Silus Otuke, an activist had  filed the petition challenging the governor’s election over claims that his degree was fake. Kampala University had previously defended the authenticity of the degree.
