Kenya: Joho's 'Growing Island' Lights Up Social Media

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, alias Governor 001, is known for his stylish fashion, army haircut and a full beard.

On Tuesday, while accompanying President Uhuru Kenyatta to inspect the ongoing restoration and beautification of Kibarani, Kenyans noticed the growing island in a sea of hair.

In pictures that have gone viral on social media, the governor's back head looks different from what many are used to.

In a recent interview with Mzazi Willy M Tuva, the governor's barber George Dufanda said Joho pays him a whooping Sh10,000 for a shave.
