Joho speaks on differing with Kingi after he made peace with DP Ruto

New developments at the Coast as 2022 race takes shape

Addressing the public on Friday two days after Kingi accompanied DP Ruto in a tour a section of the Coast region, Joho laughed of the reports maintaining and assured his supporters that the reports are far from true.

“People talking a lot of stories about Mr Kingi and I, but let me assure you that Kingi is my brother and he will remain one. That is all I am going to say,” Joho said.

Kingi’s actions sent tongues wagging and signaled what could be a change of political tune and an end to political hostility with the DP dating back to 2013.

Both Kingi and Joho have expressed interest in the 2022 presidential race with the later hinting at forming a new political outfit that will address the needs of Coast residents.

Joho’s comments were supported by Likoni MP Mishi Mboko who blamed the reports on people keen on dividing the solid union between Joho and Kingi that has seen the region back the opposition coalition NASA.

"Let us not allow people to divide us. Mr Kingi and Mr Joho are brothers and best friends,” Mboko said.

This come as the bond between the duo appear to be growing weaker. Prior to last year’s general elections, the pair would appear at political events together and put up a spirited fight to unite the region behind the opposition.

Jubilee however made some inroads and won several seats from the region that was originally perceived to be an opposition stronghold.
