Former Sports CS Richard Echesa has revealed to Newsline.co.ke that he attended adult school with Mombasa Governor H.E Hassan Joho.
While speaking at a public rally on Saturday in Matungu, Echesa disclosed that after being appointed to the cabinet he enrolled for adult education.
“Mimi vile nilipewa kazi ya uaziri, mnajua masomo [yangu] ilikuwa chini kidogo, nikasema niende kwa gumbaru. (When I was appointed as a minister, I decided to enroll in adult school since I did not have a strong education background)
Ile gumbaru nilienda yule nilipata Joho. Kwa hiyo gumbaru, mtu mjinga wa mwhisho alikuwa Joho, (I met Joho in that school. He was the most stupid person),” he narrated.
The former ODM youth winger went on to explain that Atwoli should not compare Joho to Ruto since the latter is a Ph.D. holder.
He told the COTU boss that he had no authority to speak on behalf of the Luhya community.
Earlier on Saturday, Atwoli had claimed that a plan had been hatched to block DP William Ruto from contesting for the presidency in 2022.
