Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho together with other ODM leaders from the Coast region were today forced to flee for their dear lives after a group of Youth from Mpeketoni ,Lamu County attacked them with stones and unripe mangoes.
Joho and his team were supposed to address a rally at a local market before the youth started attacking them. The youth were said to be chanting “jubilee” and showing the party’s symbols, they did not want to be addressed by the leaders.
Efforts by Joho to calm down the angry youth bore no fruits forcing his security to move in and protect him. According to reports the Youth smashed some car windows. No injuries have been reported so far.
The leaders however managed to continue with their tour of other areas in the County with a final rally at Mkungu square.
The ODM Deputy leader was in the company of Taita Taveta Governor John Mruttu, Mvita Mp Abdulswamad Nassir, Wundanyi counterpart Thomas Mwadeghu, Willy Mtengo(Malindi Mp), Rashid Bedzimba (Kisauni Mp) and Local ODM point man Rishad Amana.
Joho is leading the brigade in a tour of Coast Counties in a bid to popularise the party (ODM)ahead of the August general elections.
