The rivalry between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho escalated when Jubilee took its campaigns to the coast region Sunday, July 16.

Addressing residents in Mombasa's Jomvu area, Uhuru and Ruto attacked Joho, saying he had failed to deliver to the people of Mombasa and had concentrated on ******* him (Uhuru).

Uhuru said Joho's numerous outbursts cannot deny him sleep and the will to liberate the people of Mombasa county and the coast region at large.

“He can continue to abuse me day and night but that will not worry me. I am telling him that being a hero is acquired through doing work for the people,” Uhuru said.

On his part, Ruto once again questioned Joho's academic credentials and told the governor to go back to class to get an education without any charges.

Speaking in a different rally in Mombasa, Joho labelled Uhuru as a tourist to the coast region and claimed his administration was doing all it takes to deny him victory in the August 8 polls.

"Coast people should look at Uhuru Kenyatta as a tourist because his visits will not sway our people. Coast is peaceful and there is no cause for alarm. We have called this rally to show the region is peaceful and we will not be divided along tribal or religious lines," he said.

Joho and Uhuru do not see eye to eye and their rivalry has persisted since 2015.

Joho recently said the genesis of the rivalry was the move by the government to arrest and confine members of the Somali community at the Kasarani stadium during a crackdown on terrorism.
