CS Kazungu warns Coast residents against secession calls

Mining Cabinet secretary Dan Kazungu says calls to secede as fronted by Governors Ali Joho and Amason Kingi are untimely and baseless.

The cabinet secretary says the breakaway of coastal counties from Kenya will cause conflict among communities.

Joho and Kingi argue that the plans to secede will liberate their strongholds from political and economical control by the ruling jubilee party through boycotts, picketing and eventually seceding.

The calls have however caused anxiety among other leaders from the County with Kazungu saying it can’t happen.

The CS said secession is a weighty matter and it has shaken even powerful nations in the world, giving an example of Britain that after its famous Brexit.

He said Britain is regretting its decision is currently contemplating going back to European Union (EU).

But speaking at Kakoneni after a burial ceremony, Kilifi North MP Owen Baya insisted that their push for the coast secession is unstoppable because of the many injustices that the locals have undergone since independence.

Meanwhile Meanwhile, Narok North MP Moitalel ole Kenta has urged ODM party leader Raila Odinga to call off demonstrations planned for next week to allow KCSE candidates sit for their exams peacefully.

Kenta is calling on President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga to embrace dialogue for the sake of country’s stability, Sentiments echoed by kuria East MP Marwa Maisori who criticized NASA calls to its supporters to boycott certain products.
