Joho has been away from the public limelight for the past few weeks.
Kingi revealed that they had deliberately minimised their public appearances as they focused on the secession plan.
"I told Joho that secession talk is not going to be based on television shows. We have gone silent because we want to bring forward something tangible when we finish our plans,” he said.
“We know when we start talking about our plans, they will get to know them and frustrate us,” Kingi added.
The Kilifi Governor said they had already engaged lawyers, both local and international as they pursued the session issue while following the law.
Last month several leaders announced that they would use all legal means, both local and international, to achieve their secession ambition.
“The journey to realise secession for the coastal people has just began. This is just but the beginning of a consultative process that will involve abroad network of people to be able to realise our dream,” Joho stated.
Mr Joho said local and international lawyers had been engaged to ensure the Coast de-links from the rest of the country for development.
Kingi said their ambition was in the interest of and would involve Kenyans.
“We have decided that we are going to engage the Coastal people and get their views on the same,” he said.
