The Jubilee party led by President Kenyatta and Deputy William Ruto is trying to make inroads to the coastal regions to bolster their vote clout in the August General elections.
The area which voted massively for Raila Odinga in 2007 and 2013 elections has generated a lot of political interest for the ruling coalition with an intent to wrestle the region from the opposition claws.
Many residents are however not willing to support the government because they think the coastal region is still marginalized even by the current government, a claim they still extend to the previous regimes.
Our recent visit to the area revealed a lot support to the opposition which has promised them better opportunities and services which will come immediately they assume power.
The current government is still trying to woo the residents to give them another chance so that they can fulfil the pledges they made to them in 2013. Led by Hon. Gideon Mung’aro, the current Mp for Kilifi North but trying his stab on Governorship, he has promised the area residents of a total overhaul of county services immediately he takes over from the incumbent, Governor Amason Kingi, whom he claims has done nothing to alleviate the suffering the people of Kilifi are facing currently.
Our media channel commissioned a poll where 2114 respondents were asked which coalition they’ll support or vote for in August ,78% of the respondents said they’ll vote for NASA while 10% for Jubilee while 12% are still undecided, with a sampling margin of error of+-3%.
