What Will Mombasa Governor Do About Gangsters Now That He's Back?

Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho is back in the country from his month-long tour of the U.S. amid a storm over his prolonged absence from the county. Joho's photos in the company of American socialite Paris Hilton which were widely shared on social media caused a storm in the county coming hot on the heels of renewed attacks on residents by armed gangs that left 13 people seriously injured.
