Kingi Vows to Sacrifice His Blood to See through Coast Secession Plan

By ALLAN TAWAI

Kilifi governor Amason Kingi has said that he is ready to sacrifice his blood if that is what it will take to realize secession of the coast region.

Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of the county executive committee members on Thursday, Kingi said that the call for secession is unstoppable.

He added that he has dropped his plans to run for the presidency in 2022 to focus on the agenda of making the region independent.

The governor announced that the county will host a convention of leaders from the region to dialog the way forward on the plan.

“People will be maimed while others will be threatened but we as leaders must come together to fight for this cause,” he said. “Not everyone would want to see the region get justice. We will be prosecuted and some will be harassed but we must hold together to save our future generations.”

The second term governor, however, pointed that the national government has a window to stop the calls by implementing devolution as spelled out in the new Constitution.

“This government is not keen on implementing devolution as stipulated in the constitution. If you want to ruin your vehicle do not refuel it.”

“The national government is killing devolution by failing to release money to counties on time. This is the main reason we want to manage our own affairs as the coast region,” he added.

He said the conference will bring on board the clergy, elders, politicians, and the academia to chat the way forward on the matter.

Kilifi North MP Owen Baya said his secession motion will be tabled in Parliament once the August House resumes sittings.

“Whoever thought the motion was dead is wrong as it will be tabled immediately we resume sittings. We have been marginalised for a long time and this must come to an end.”

“The only way is to have the region secede and manage its affairs,” Baya said.

Rabai MP William Kamoti urged the leaders to unify and come up with a strong coastal party even as they push for secession.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Chief Justice David Maraga on Friday turned down Kakamega Senator Cleaophas Malala’s three goat gift citing the Judicial Service Commission code of conduct that bars him from receiving a gift worth more than Sh20,000.

CJ Maraga had graced the Grand opening of the new Kakamega Law Courts building when he was presented with the gift.

“Today on behalf of the people of Kakamega and as the Senator for Kakamega. I want to present to you a symbolic gift that is going to help you achieve this legacy.

“I have three animals here representing three arms of the government. I want to present it to you as a symbolic gift representing unity among the the three arms of the government.” said Senator Malala

The CJ who instead handed the goats to Kakamega law courts users’ committee chairman Sylvester Mambiri also sited Malala’s ongoing court case.

“If am not wrong, the senator has donated a gift to me but he has put me in trouble because I think he has a case in court, secondly under the Judiciary code of conduct I am not allowed to take a gift which is more than 20,000 shillings and this goats look like they are more than 30,000.” the CJ said

BY KEVIN KOECH

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has suspended Kilifi North Member of Parliament Owen Baya days after he attended Deputy President William Ruto’s meeting.

The MP was accused of switched alliances and teaming up with DP William Ruto and the party had resolved to take action on the MP over what they called “recent political alignments.”

In a statement through the Party’s Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna, the party announced that the National Executive Committee (NEC) had also decided to suspend Baya from his position as the Deputy Organizing Secretary.

The party explained that the decision was made after his recent move which has cast doubt on his commitment to this party and its objectives.

“Cognizant of the central role that the party’s NEC plays in the management of the party and the need to maintain the probity of its deliberations the NEC resolved to suspend MP Owen Baya from membership of this critical organ and from his position as the Deputy Organizing Secretary given his recent public utterances and conduct that have cast doubt on his commitment to this party and its objectives,” read a statement from the party.

On Wednesday, Baya was part of a delegation of Coast MPs that escorted Feisal Abdallah Bader, an aspirant for the Msambweni parliamentary seat, to meet Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen office.

Atwoli intensifies fight with DP Ruto over hustler tag

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General Francis Atwoli has once again put Deputy President William Ruto on blast for using the ‘hustler’ tag.

Speaking during a press conference, the Atwoli stated that the tag hustler had a negative meaning which translates to someone who uses mischievous ways to get wealth.

He added that all Kenyans are yearning for is an organized system of government that could provide employment and not creating hustlers.

He pointed out that William Ruto was not poor as he makes his supporters believe and he is just using them to climb to the top. He disclosed that William Ruto owns choppers, mansions, and every space in the country.

Atwoli went on to call out the DP for the donations he has been giving out to the youths and women stating that they were just peanuts compared to the amount of wealth he has amassed over the years.

“The person telling you about being a hustler owns five choppers, a mansion and owns every empty space in the republic of Kenya. You are calling yourself a hustler and yet you are not. Even God cannot allow. Then you go to the church to cheat about being a hustler,” he said.

A few days ago, Atwoli blasted William Ruto for using the tag while asking Kenyans to reject him stating that no one should allow themselves to be called a hustler. He claimed that hustlers are thieves.

Atwoli who claimed that he would disown his children if they referred themselves as hustlers stated that people should go to school, get an education and get jobs in reputable companies instead of hustling.

“You then become a branch manager of Kenya Breweries, get a house allowance, a car loan, and have a nice house. You are not hustlers. We cannot have a nation of hustlers because it is a man eats man society,” Atwoli said.
