Kingi said on Friday at the Kenya Kwanza movement economic forum in Kilifi that he could cry tears at the sight of folks still supporting ODM by donning the party's regalia since the party did not deserve the same. He highlighted that the Raila-led party had abandoned the inhabitants, despite their overwhelming support for his 2017 presidential campaign, by failing to nominate one of their own to Parliament.
He asserted that his team ensured that all elected Members of the County Assembly (MCAs), Members of Parliament (MPs), Women Representatives, and senators in 2017 were ODM members so that Raila would thank them for their hard work, but without success.
According to the outspoken governor, the party decided to nominate individuals from neighboring counties and Raila's relatives and associates rather than reward Kilifi citizens who supported him. He claimed that the previous prime minister might have selected at least one female from the country.
However, he praised vice president Dr. William Ruto for persuading the ruling party Jubilee to nominate one of their own as a senator following the 2017 elections.
He pledged to campaign for DP Ruto's presidential candidacy because he believed it would address all of the crises facing Kilifi locals, including economic and leadership issues. He urged DP Ruto not to break his commitments to the residents in order to earn their trust in the future elections.
This is the result of Kingi and the Pamoja African African Alliance (PAA) leaving the Azimio La Umoja movement and joining the Kenya Kwanza team. The governor highlighted Raila's prior betrayal and refusal to address socioeconomic issues as the causes for their departure.
