Joho had ‘disowned’ his D- KCSE mean grade two months ago

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho on Tuesday made an about turn on his KCSE mean grade, two months after he had issued a vehement denial to queries on his academic qualifications.

In mid-January, Governor Joho, through his County Director of Communications Richard Chacha, had dismissed a KCSE result slip that indicated he had scored a D- (Minus) in secondary school.

At the time, Mr Chacha had reasoned that the governor’s full name was not as indicated on the result slip that had gone viral.

“His name is Hassan Ali Joho not Ali Hassan. That is fake,” Mr Chacha had explained.

But on Tuesday, Mr Joho publicly acknowledged that he is ” a proud owner of D- (minus)” mean grade the got in KCSE exams.

” Not doing well in Form Four examinations is not the end of life. You can turn that around, and that is what I have been able to achieve,” an emotional Mr Joho told journalists on Tuesday.
