Joho refutes claims that he has resigned from ODM
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has denied claims that he has resigned from being the deputy leader for ODM party.
Joho took to his social media pages to refute the claims and stated that ODM party is very strong and ready for the Msambweni by-elections.
The ODM party has also trashed the later stating that the party has got no time to deal with lies.
“We thrive in truth, fake news is not our thing,” the party said and uploaded an image of the letter inscribed ‘Fake News’.
The fake letter emerged on social media Thursday evening and it stated that Mombasa Governor has resigned from being the deputy party leader.
” I hereby thank you for the opportunity you granted me to serve as a deputy party leader in ODM. I believe during my tenure I served you and the party members diligently, including organizing for campaigns in different parts of the country and catering for expense even as the party was experiencing tough economic times,” read the fake letter.
The letter contained what looked like the party’s official letterhead and a signature similar to that of Governor Joho was addressed to ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
Party supporters took to social media to castigate the governor for taking a bad decision with those allied to Tanga tanga urging him to join Deputy President William Ruto team.
The letter came a day before the ODM candidate in the Msambweni by-election Omar Boga was to present his nomination papers to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices.
Reports indicate Boga will be accompanied by Joho among a host of other ODM leaders at the Coast.
“Our nominee for the December 15 by-election in Msambweni Constituency will present his nomination papers to the IEBC. We shall bring you the event and the subsequent rally at Sawa Sawa grounds,” the party tweeted on Thursday.
