Fifteen Members of the County Assembly have called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to clarify his recent broadside against Governor Hassan Joho.
They said Uhuru's utterances that Jubilee would "discipline or deal with him (Joho)" were tantamount to threats and that the head of state should clarify what he meant.
"We have reason to believe that the governor and county officials are in danger. That is why we are seeking a clarification of what the President meant by 'dealing with and disciplining' the governor," said Tononoka Ward Representative Saad Ahmed, who spoke on behalf of the MCAs.
Speaking at the Mombasa County Assembly yesterday, Mr Ahmed said that soon after Uhuru's outbursts, Joho's residence was raided by unknown people.
