Lamu, KENYA: Lamu governor Issa Timamy has stated that his good relationship and cooperation with the president shall stay on despite his recent ditching of Jubilee.
Early last week,Timamy announced that he was leaving his recently joined new Jubilee party for Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC party.
Speaking in Lamu on Sunday,Timamy said leaving Jubilee does not mean an end to the courteous relationship between him and president Uhuru Kenyatta and that the county government of Lamu shall continue to show its cooperation and respect for the national government.
Timamy said he will continue to work with the national government and that he shall not allow his personal decision to affect service delivery to the people of Lamu and the much needed development too.
He acknowledged and said he was very aware of all efforts being made by the national government to improve various infrastructures in the different sectors in Lamu.
“My move from Jubilee to ANC is a personal one and I shall therefore not mix it with my mandate to the people of Lamu.I shall therefore continue working with the president.what changed is my choice for a party not my relationship with the national government nor the president,”said Timamy.
There are however murmurs from a section of the political class in Lamu who feel Timamy’s defection from Jubilee to ANC, might directly affect and even stop the trickling of goodies from the national government to Lamu.
