A clash of titans is set to explode in the Kilifi, after Kingi vowed to teach the vocal Malindi Mp Aisha Jumwa a lesson of a lifetime.
Miss Jumwa who is a leading proponent of Tanga tanga a political outfit that roots for the election of Dp William Ruto as president in 2022. The group has been going around the country making mockery of the Handshake led by Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga everyone supporting them and the BBI plebiscite.
In Kilifi County, Aisha has taken it upon herself to religiously market the Tanga tanga ideology. Of the 7 MPs only Kaloleni Mp Paul Katana is seen as having a close association with Ruto and her.
According to political analysts, Aisha has turned out to be a lone ranger having left the ODM Party to “Jubilee B”. “ODM is the main Party on the ground and enjoys massive grassroots support and anyone going against it is doomed to fail. No matter how powerful the individual is” said mzee Luganje the Malindi Constituency ODM Chairman.
Amongst the strategies laid down by Aisha in popularizing her ideologies is by use of abusive language against colleagues, threats to their supporters and discrediting projects by fellow leaders.
According to ground research and analysis conducted by Uji Moto, Kingi is not the first leader to be on the receiving end of Aisha. Ganze Mp, Teddy Mwambire has been a soft punching bag for the fierce Mekatilili. Just last year Aisha took to Ganze for an offensive, holding several rallies against Teddy. “This is the pure truth. Hon. Aisha Jumwa Karisa can’t and will never be a Governor in 2022. Spending her time in my constituency including the new year at Kadzangani in Bamba plotting on how to remove me in 2022 won’t bear fruits. Am aware she ganged up with my political opponents during the 2017 general elections campaign to decampaign for me which she failed. She sided with the petitioner during my long election petition and they failed. Last year she brought together all the former parliamentary aspirants in Ganze constituency so as to back one person against me which am laughing off. Hon. Aisha Jumwa Karisa is a nobody to me and I promise to confirm this after the 2022 general elections God willing. There is no way Ganze people can be imposed a leader by Jumwa. Let me relax as she waves her waist in Ganze constituency thinking that she is great after messing up Malindi. We will milk her Tanga Tanga resources dry then deal with her properly. Am not too naive in this game. Come baby keep on coming to Ganze…” Teddy remarked.
Speaking in Gongoni ward in his Magarini home turf, Kingi dared Aisha to interfere in his projects again. He advised her to instead use her time in developing Malindi. He accused Aisha of moving around Kilifi County spreading propaganda to the leadership of the County.
He further commissioned the youth to keep a check on her, terming her a false prophet. “You should keep watch and guard against that devil” Kingi directed amidst acclamation from the youth.
Michael Kingi who is also the Magarini Mp was addressing Parents and pupils who sat for KCPE 2019 and were called to join National Schools. 130 pupils were awarded full year scholarship from the Magarini CDF kitty totaling to 5.2M shillings.
Michael who is positioning to take over the County from his elder brother Amason Kingi the current governor whose term ends in 2022 has promised to give Aisha a run for her money. Aisha is amongst the front runners to the Kilifi succession race. Others include Lands CAS Gedion Mungaro, Deputy Governor Gedion Saburi, Senator Stewart Madzayo, Kilifi North Mp Owen Baya, Kilifi South Mp Ken Chonga and Nairobi based lawyer George Kithi son of Ganze.
