I am ready to abandon ODM for Coastal party, Governor Kingi

Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi has castigated a section of Mombasa politicians who have vowed to stay put in their mother parties and yet the regional was gearing up to unveil a coastal party.

Kingi says that it was wrong for Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho to insist on staying in the party while on the other hand, he wants the Coast region to unite.

The remarks by Governor Kingi come days after Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir claimed that he and Joho would not abandon ODM since they had invested a lot of resources in the party.

Speaking to journalists after meeting Kilifi MCAs in Kilifi town on Saturday, Governor Kingi also insisted that he had invested a lot of resources in ODM but was ready to abandon it after reading the mood of voters in the region who yearn for a coastal party.

He also insisted that the new party will have a national outlook with local roots and will have membership from all regions in Kenya.

Meanwhile, Laikipia Women Representative Cate Waruguru and Former Director-General of the Kenya Airports Authority George Muhoho have called on Kenyans and leaders to support the constitutional change the country was undergoing through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

The sentiments were shared by the Kenya Youth Alliance who called on Youths to seize the moment and support the BBI document which promises a lot of goodies to the young Kenyans.
