Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho criticized the Jubilee government for failing the nation, citing different regions in the country, including Western region, as an example. “In Western Kenya, we all know you depend on Agriculture, you depend on sugar farming, yet Jubilee haven’t helped sugar companies,” said Governor Joho. He said the government has failed companies like Mumias Sugar Company and Nzoia Sugar Company.
He said that the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) project wasn’t initiated by the Jubilee government, “The SGR project was initiated by Raila Odinga and Mwai Kibaki, and the price was good. Now the government has come in and hiked the set price used in the project.”
