Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho fined Ksh 250,000 contempt of court or face 60 days in jail .
Hewas charged alongside Changamwe MCA, Bernard Ogutu.
The verdict was delivered by Justice Munyao Sila on Friday. Moreover, he stated that breaking the law is not heroic and urged leaders to set a good example.
“Kenyans love peace and would like to live in a country where leaders lead from the front in respecting the rule of law,” said Justice Sila. “We want to live in a country that respects the rule of law and obeys a court order,” he added.
Justice Munyao stated that the Governor who appeared in court showed no remorse. This is despite being found culpable.
“There is not much remorse in Mr Hassan Joho’s mitigation statement, his apparent lack of remorse is very perturbing to this court,” Justice Sila said.
In addition to the fine, the governor will be held liable for any damages suffered by the plaintiff as a result of the incident.
In the meantime, the Changamwe MCA was fined Ksh.20,000, or 14 days in jail. According to the court, he had shown remorse and appeared to have learned from his mistakes. Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho fined Ksh 250,000.
At the same time, the Mombasa court issued an arrest warrant for the two, ordering them to be taken to the Shimo La Tewa prison unless they provide proof of payment of the bail.
Ashok Doshi, a Mombasa businessman, filed the case in the Environment and Land Court in 2019.
His claim was that he owns a parcel of land in Changamwe, Mombasa, which was raided by Mombasa County officers on 25/2/2019, creating chaos and damage.
He went to court and obtained an injunction barring all Mombasa County officers, officials, and employees from accessing his plot.
Despite the court order, Joho and Changamwe MCA, accompanied by about 100 hired goons and other political leaders including Omar Mwinyi, visited the plot on 10/5/2019 and caused even more chaos and damage.
Mr. Ashok Doshi returned to court and filed a contempt of court complaint against Joho and the MCA.
