Kilifi, KENYA: Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba had to cut short his public address in Kilifi, after he was booed by a group of youths for trying to speak against governor Amason Kingi’s leadership in the region.
Speaking during the Rabai Cultural Festivals that took place over the weekend at Dr. Kraft grounds, Ababu had accused governor Amason Kingi for failing in his leadership.
Ababu accused Governor Kingi of failing to provide water for Ganze, Magarini and Kaloleni constituents who are now facing imminent hunger.
“Kingi should have pity on the hunger stricken residents by providing them with devolved resources like water and agriculture.” Said Ababu.
Things turned ugly as Ababu asked constituents to avoid voting in the current leadership; saying that it had no vision and that it was marred by massive corruption.
He added that the county cannot account for sh. 1.6 billion according to deputy governor Keneth Kamto;who was also attending the festivals.
However, the energetic Ababu had to cut short his speech when the youths vowed not to let him address them and demanded that he hand over the microphone to the master of ceremony.
