Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa on Tuesday, May 17, declared that she was opposed to Deputy President William Ruto's appointment of Governor Amason Kingi as one of the Kenya Kwanza coordinators in Kilifi County.
Speaking to the press, she claimed that Kingi's poor record at the helm of the county in the last 10 years threatened to reduce the United Democratic Alliance (UDA's) popularity in the coastal region.
She demanded that the outgoing governor must undertake a cleansing process with county residents before he could embark on executing the role bestowed on him.
"We note with great concern that his bad record as county chief will affect the popularity of UDA in the county unless he starts sanitizing himself with the people of Kilifi. UDA coordinator for Kilifi County is Aisha Jumwa and will be assisted by Kilifi North MP Owen Baya.
"Communities in Kilifi still have concerns on how Kingi executed his mandate as the governor of the this county. For this reason, in order to consolidate the more votes Deputy President William Ruto was going to get in Kilifi, we ask him to start making inroads in Kilifi while sanitising himself," the vocal MP stated.
Jumwa further blew the whistle on what she claims are attempts by the governor to convert the county into a PAA Zone.
