President Uhuru is soldiering on with his tour of Coast region even after Kilifi governor Amason Jefa Kingi and other local leaders boycotted his functions.
Most of the Kilifi residents kept off the president’s tour, on a few mostly school children showed up in the presidential events in Lango Baya Primary School, Baricho Lot 1 Water Supply Project, Baricho Captive Power Project, Weru Technical Vocational College in Kilifi county, Kakuyuni, Ganda and Kanoneni all in Kilifi county.
HERE is what Kilifi governor told the Kilifi residents after he allegedly boycotted the president’s trip
“Rais alikuja Kilifi kwa ajili ya maswala ya maendeleo. Lakini ni bayana kuwa ameubadili mkondo na kuanza kupiga siasa. Lakini kwa vile sisi wawili tuko mirengo tofauti ya kisiasa, imenibidi nijiondoe kwenye msafara wa rais kwa kuwa sitaki kumpigia debe mgombezi wetu wa ODM katika hafla moja ambayo rais anaitumia kumpigia debe mgombeaji wa Jubilee. Hiyo ni kukoseana heshima” Gov. Kingi
