Mombasa,Kenya:The Ethics and anti corruption commission has began investigations on embattled Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho’s primary school education.
This comes after the Kenya national examinations council earlier accused the governor of forging his Kenya certificate of Secondary Education certificate.
In a letter to Tom Mboya primary school which is alleged to be the education institution where the governor attended , the anti corruption body wants the institution to furnish them with information regarding the governor’s enrollment details, K.C.P.E grades and and completion certificates.
The letter written by the EACC Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Michael Mubea, the Commission says it is investigating the allegations touching on the conduct of Joho.
The commission has mentioned in the letter that it would send two officers to collect the information from the school before 5th of April.
Earlier, the governor confirmed that he indeed scored a D-in his Kenya certificate of Secondary Education which he sat for in 1993 at Serani boy’s secondary in Mombasa county.

However earlier in the year, Chacha the director of communications for the Mombasa county government had rubbished claims that the governor scored a D- in his K.C.S.E after a certificate with the names Ali Hassan and a D- grade surfaced online.
This comes as the High Court temporarily barred police from probing, summoning, arresting or prosecuting Joho over the alleged forgery of his 1992 KCSE results slip.
