Kisii senator, Sam Ongeri saved Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho’s mother’s life mid flight. This was revealed by Joho when he appeared before the Senate Devolution committee over his political fights with Mombasa MCAs.
Joho, emotionally thanked Ongeri for the act while revealing he often prays for the former Kenyan ambassador to the UN Habitat; “All of us have somehow benefited from his hard work in our republic. Senator and I were once travelling to a foreign country then my mother fell ill four hours after take-off and we had nowhere to turn to.
Senator Ongeri quickly came through for us and looked after my mother till we landed in Dubai where we sent her to hospital. Senator, I’ve never been able to thank you enough; I always pray for you.”
Speaking during the session, Joho denied being behind a plot to dissolve the County Assembly in protest to summonses issued to three County Executive Committee Members by the MCAs. He denied sponsoring a lobby group to collect signatures to send home errant MCAs.
