Why I ditched Raila’s Azimio to Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza – Governor Kingi


Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi has officially ditched Aimio coalition to Kenya Kwanza.

Ruto outlined three reasons why he opted out of the Azimio coalition.

He cited lack of transparency in the Azimio coalition as the main reason for his exit.

“My alliance had to opt-out because the legal process of PAA could not be completed since Azimio refused to give us the document of agreement,” he said.

Addressing the media in Karen on Tuesday, Kingi said Azimio dealings are shrouded in deep secrecy.

“The dealings are shrouded in deep mistrust. Consultations are done by a few and forced down our throats,” he said.

“Due to the above two reasons, it became difficult for PAA to remain there.”

Kingi said apart from usual rhetorics in Azimio, there is no commitment for the Coastal people.

Kingi is the defacto leader of the PAA party. Kingi’s move comes a week after the party officials dismissed the allegations that he was about to join Ruto’s team.

PAA party officials led by George Kithi, Kilifi Governor candidate, and William Kingi, deputy governor and Mombasa governor candidate had confirmed that they were planning to exit Azimio but said they will not be joining any other coalition.

The Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu had said PAA cannot ditch Azimio.

On Monday morning,  Maendeleo Chap Chap party of Governor Alfred Mutua ditched the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition over frustration and being sidelined when it comes to matters of negotiations.
