If using a credit/debit card to donate, make sure you have it physically with you to be ready to have a smooth transaction,” reads a message on the web site .
Joho is one among the leaders hogging the limelight permanently reasons because the country battles the new coronavirus, which causes Covid-19 disease.
The governor has taken the additional measure to make sure that Mombasa doesn’t become the country’s epicenter of the outbreak of the virus.
His administration has put aside the Sh200 million Emergency Household Relief and Nutrition Support Project as a part of the Mombasa Economic Stimulus Programme which will ensure residents are adequately taken care of just in case of a lockdown.
Joho also received over 18 ventilators donated by the leader of Dubai, Sheikh Ahmed Mohammed Al-Falas.
Joho, along side his ex-gubernatorial competitor Suleiman Shahbal, have also set auto sprayers at the Likoni ferry crossing and markets in Mombasa.
Last Thursday, he announced another first, fixing a 150-bed capacity military hospital at the Technical University of Mombasa.
