3 things Raila convinced Joho to do after meeting with Kingi amidst reports of a fallout

Why Raila met Joho and Kingi amidst reports of a fallout between the two governors

The meeting which took place at Ashanti restaurant saw the NASA boss broker truce between the two governors and convince Joho to invite Kingi to a rival meeting organized by Joho in Mombasa.

Last week, Kingi held a meeting with 21 Coast MPs and condemned ODM for commencing disciplinary proceedings against rebel MPs supporting DP Ruto’s 2022 bid.

A day later, Joho threw the spanner into works, calling for a meeting with all Coast MCA’s with reports indicating that the move is meant to consolidate support for ODM and tame DP Ruto’s growing influence.

Joho also agreed to postpone the meeting which was scheduled for last Friday to Wednesday next week and invite Kingi to the same meeting.

The Kilifi governor has confirmed his participation at the meeting which will be held at Pride Inn at the coastal city.

While Joho has disclosed that he will be seeking the ODM Party ticket to run for the presidency, Kingi has expressed interest in forming his party and bringing on board other leaders from the Coast.

ODM has suffered losses in the recent past with some of its most vocal MPs openly rebelling against party directives and declaring support for DP Ruto’s candidature in 2022.

Among those who have broken ranks with the party are Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Badi Twalib ( Jomvu), Benjamin Tayari (Kinango), Ali Mbogo (Kisauni), Khatib Mwashetani (Lunga Lunga), Owen Baya (Kilifi North), Stanley Muthama (Lamu West), Paul Katana (Kaloleni) Sharif Ali (Lamu East) and Suleiman Dori (Msambweni).
