This comes just days after PAA ditched Azimio la Umoja and signed a pre-election agreement with the Kenya Kwanza coalition led by Deputy President William Ruto.
Trouble began last week after the outgoing Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi stated that the PAA party will field candidates in all positions in the county except for the presidential seat.
However, Jumwa who is eying to succeed Kingi said by fielding candidates for all seats except the presidential seat, PAA will be going against the agreement signed between Kenya Kwanza and PAA.
“It was agreed during the meeting that there would be no zoning in Kilifi and UDA, the mother party in the Kenya Kwanza coalition would field candidates,” Jumwa stated.
The vocal legislator further raised concerns that Governor Kingi’s poor record as the Kilifi Governor might negatively affect the popularity of Kenya Kwanza in the Coastal region unless he starts sanitizing himself with the people.
“While we appreciate Amason Kingi as an outgoing governor we note with great concern that his bad records as county chief may affect UDA and Kenya Kwanza’s popularity in Kilifi County unless he starts sanitizing himself with the people of Kilifi,” she said.
It is understood that this is not the first time for Kenya Kwanza to experience rivalry sibling within Kenya Kwanza affiliate parties.
Last week, UDA chairman Johnson Muthama maintained that he will never share a political forum with Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua of the Maendeleo Chap Chap, an affiliate party under the Kenya Kwanza coalition.
