Governor Amason Kingi accused President Uhuru os discriminating against some parts of the country in terms of development


Political rivalry between Kilifi governor Amason Kingi and president Uhuru Kenyatta may not end any time soon. This comes after Kingi fired a retaliatory salvo at the president after touring his Kilifi homeground and threatening to arrest him.

“This is the time to speak the truth. Uhuru Kenyatta cannot manage the Presidency, he is a good guy, but we are not looking for a good guy. We are looking for a good President,” Kingi recently said.

“A good president is a person who will not discriminate parts of the country. There are areas in this country that have not benefited from a single project from the National Government since it ascended to power,” added Kingi, who was speaking in Junju ward, Kilifi South sub-county during a meeting with religious leaders.

Kingi also did not spare his opponents. On the firing line was Kilifi North Constituency MP Gideon Mung’aro whom he accused of failing to bring development projects home despite jumping to bed with Jubilee Party.

Kingi said Mung’aro has never fought for his people while in Parliament where all the laws pertaining to development are passed.

“Mung’aro is a great friend of the President, and that is why he is asking the people to elect him as the governor. His relationship with Uhuru does not add value to our lives because we need development. Kilifi North has never progressed though you will always see him next to the president,” he said.
