Former nominated Senator who was recently ousted Isaac Mwaura has in recent days been on a fierce warpath, and all his venom has been directed at none other than his former party boss, Raila Odinga.
In his latest attack at the former Prime Minister and the Orange Democratic Movement party leader, Mwaura claims that prior to last Thursday’s event in Rabai Kilifi, where the area governor Amason Kingi attended the handing out of title deeds by the president, he had given the former Premier a tongue lashing.
Mwaura was speaking on Radio Jambo’s weekly political show Mazungumzo Wazi Wazi which is hosted by Bramwell Mwololo. Others on the show were lawyer and activist Brian Weke and Amani National Congress party official Mulama. Joining them on the phone was embattled Thirdway Alliance party founder Ekuru Aukot.
Mwaura said that all the present front-runners in the presidential race had, at one point or the other, supported Raila Odinga. He started with Musalia Mudavadi, who he noted, supported Raila in 2007, and 2017. He then moved to Kalonzo Musyoka who he mentioned, had supported Raila twice since 2013. He also mentioned the 2007 elections when William Ruto was a member of ODM, and supported Raila.
Mwaura capped off with talk about the coastal region. He said that the coast which had always supported Raila, had this time also resolved to front their own candidate, then claimed that even the Kilifi governor, Amason Kingi, had warned Raila against going to coast during the ceremony of handing over title deeds.
Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi who also spoke at the event thanked the President for prioritizing the settlement of landless people at the Coast and across the country.
Kingi observed that in the nine years of President Kenyatta’s leadership, the population of Coast residents holding title deeds to their parcels of land had risen exponentially.
“For 50 years, the Coast Region received only 230,000 title deeds but from 2013 to date, the Coast has received 500,000 title deeds in 9 years. In Kilifi between 1963 and 2012 the County received 52,000 title deeds while since 2013 to-date the region has received 100,000 title deeds,” Governor Kingi noted.
