Uhuru yesterday threatened to have Kingi and other governors jailed over alleged corruption.
He said this will happen if he wins the election. Uhuru accused Kingi and other governors of misusing Sh40 billion.
He spoke in Ganze during the second day of his tour of the Coast to woo voters. Uhuru said Kilifi would be developed if the cash was utilised properly.
Kingi hit back and told the President to explain how he spent the Sh2.7 trillion allocated to the national government.
Addressing a Muslim leaders’ meeting at Multipurpose Social Hall in Kwa Kijala, Kingi said the President does not know how much was allocated to the county.
He told Uhuru to check his records before threatening him. Kingi said the county has received Sh27.3 billion since 2013 and questioned how the President arrived at Sh40 billion.
