Governor Kingi Continues With His Plan Just Days After Meeting President Uhuru

Many expected that Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi would drop his plan of forming a coastal political party after meeting President Uhuru Kenyatta. Kingi has in several occasions said that coast need political unity which will give them collective bargaining power. According to the governor, this can be achieved through a strong regional party.

When Kingi in company of Joho and Mvurya visited State House, many pundits thought the idea of dripping a regional party was on the discussion. It seems the opposite as Kingi goes full throttle on forming a new political party.

Amason Kingi and Governor Joho are influential ODM coastal leaders. A split from ODM might dent Raila's popularity in the region. It is not yet clear if Joho will join the new outfit as he has already submitted papers to vie for presidency under ODM Party.

ODM has said it will seek to form alliances with other parties after end of BBI process. If Kingi goes ahead and forms a regional party, that doesn't rule out working with ODM in future.
