Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi held a meeting with One Kenya Alliance(OKA) leaders days after his ouster from the position of county ODM chairman.
Just a day after holding a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula met the Kilifi Governor, albeit accidentally.
“Bumped into some of the Principals of the OKA team in Mombasa; Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, and Wetangula (we)had a brief, impromptu discussion. Agreed that there is a need for further and structured engagement,” Governor Amason Kingi said in a social media post.
Kingi’s meeting with the three principals has raised speculations since it happened just after his fallout with Raila Odinga.
On August 10, the ODM party announced the removal of Governor Amason Kingi from the position of ODM chairman in Kilifi over disloyalty.
Raila Odinga revealed that he removed Kingi from the position because he betrayed and backstabbed him.
“Kingi is not the first [politician] to run away from ODM, neither is he is the first person to betray me,
“I am used to being backstabbed. Kingi has no solutions to the problems facing the Coastal people. I am thinking power has gone into his head,” Raila Odinga said through a statement on the day he kicked out the 2-time governor.
The Kilifi Governor has been advocating for a coastal region party that will give the region a voice in the 2022 General Election.
The Governor received the news of his ouster kindly, thanking the ODM party of giving him an opportunity to serve.
However, he denied Odinga’s claim that he was a traitor, saying that he served the party with due diligence earning them massive support in the coastal region.
“During my tenure, I steered the party to great success and made sure that the Party became the dominant party in the County,
A fact that was confirmed during the last General Election when Kilifi County became the only County in the Country to deliver ODM a clean sweep,” he said.
