Don’t Lecture Me On Kilifi Development, Kingi Tells Uhuru

By Kazungu Samuel

Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi has told President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop lecturing him on the Sh9 billion the county gets from the equitable share.

Instead, Mr Kingi said the President should tell Kilifi residents what he has done with the trillions of shillings given to national government annually.

Speaking at Ngerenya trading centre accompanied by Woman Representative Aisha Jumwa, the governor said he could name the projects he had initiated with the funds in the county but there was nothing to show from the national government.

“I have today inspected more than 10 projects in this Ward (Tezo) and many more projects we initiated since coming to power in 2013. We have implemented many projects in all the 35 wards in the county and that is what the Sh9 billion has done for us as Kilifi people,” he said.

The governor told Jubilee supporters in Kilifi that before poking holes on the county projects, they should first show the residents any projects that the national government initiated to benefit them.

“Whenever the President comes to Kilifi, he always talk of the Sh9 billion shillings that we get from the national government. At least we can show the people projects that we initiated with the funds.

“Before Jubilee supporters lament over county projects, they should first tell us what the trillions of money held at the treasury has done to improve on the lives of our people,” he said.

Ms Jumwa also asked the Jubilee administration to explain how 85 per cent of the funds that remain with the national government has benefited the locals.

“Only 15 per cent is given to the counties and still we can see projects initiated with the funds. Can the Jubilee government tell us what projects it has done with the funds instead of trying to lure people to join it,” she said.

The governor said it was for those failures that the residents should reject Jubilee and vote for Raila Odinga of the National Super Alliance (Nasa) as the President on August 8.

He told the President to expect a bruising battle for the Kilifi votes which he said was sure will go to Raila’s ballot in August.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta did not get any votes in 2013 and a replica of the same is about to happen on August 8. He will get nothing because the people of Kilifi know their quest for change lies in Raila Odinga,” Mr Kingi said.
