Mombasa Governor, Hassan Ali Joho was on Wednesday blocked by the police from attending the launch of Standard Gauge Railway at Miritini.

President Kenyatta is presiding over the launch of the Sh327 billion project and in attendance are top Chinese officials and Kenya government officials.

Mr Joho’s spokesman Richard Chacha said security personnel prevented Mr Joho from entering the station.

The governor, he said, wanted to attend the launch of the passenger train so that he could question why the SGR cost was inflated by more than Sh100 billion.
