Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho fears no politician in the country.
Joho has affirmed that he will not just sit and watch leaders hoodwinking Kenyans with ghost projects.
Unlike other governors who praise the government with the aim of getting goodies at the end of the day, Joho takes the bull by its horns.
The Coast kingpin is among the few leaders who have exchanged words with President Uhuru Kenyatta face to face.
The governor confirmed to the whole nation that he will not hide behind leadership privileges and watch leaders looting what belongs to the common Mwananchi.
The fact that he is among the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) top leadership contributes to his influence in the region.
A few months ago, Joho lashed out at Deputy William Ruto for allegedly grabbing land in different parts of the nation.
Despite being criticised for disrespecting the Presidency, the governor is not ready to bury his head under the sun and pretend all is well.
When Cord leader Raila Odinga parted ways with Ruto, no one ever thought he could find a true friend.
Joho is among the leaders who are ready to do anything to ensure Raila rises to power.
In addition, his performance track record has made him more popular in the region.
