Mombasa County governor Hassan Joho has shared a throwback picture online reminiscing on his humble beginnings.
Taking to his Instagram account, Joho shocked his fans after sharing a picture at a time when he had no shoes to wear.
The photo showed the governor standing bare foot infront of their house alongside his two young friends.
He also wore a simple black and white shirt and a short.
In the photo captioned before and after, where in the after photo showed how he had changed.
In the after photo, he dressed in a bespoke blue suit.
“Before and after… Alhamdulillah.”
In a previous interview , the 45-year-old Joho narrated how he used to study during the day and go to work at night to get money for school fees and also to feed himself.
“I struggled to take myself through school, sold snacks and did menial jobs to help my family and even worked at the port carrying cargo for KSh 80 to pay my fees,” he said in March 2017.
During the same interview, Joho admitted that he got a D- in KCSE and urged people not to mock him but use it as an inspiration.
“I got a D- when I sat for my exams in 1993. This should not be used to mock me.
Instead, it should be used to encourage those who failed in their exams that grades will not determine their future,” he said.
