The State has been stopped from arresting and prosecuting Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho over his academic papers.

The High Court further stopped police, the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Attorney-General from continued harassment of the ODM deputy party leader concerning the papers.

The State breached and violated Mr Joho’s rights by starting fresh investigations over his academic credentials, the court ruled.

Justice Eric Ogola, Thursday said that the investigations were ill- timed, politically instigated and that the intended prosecution against the governor was not consistent with constitutional values.
