Kilifi leaders welcome unity and call for an end to tribalism

Kilifi leaders have resolved to unite all Kenyans residing in the area and called for an end to tribalism that has bedeviled residents since independence.
Kilifi governor Amason Jefwa Kingi who led leaders in a meeting with the task force on building bridges to unity at Pwani University yesterday said truth and justice must be upheld by the committee as they collect views from members of the public.
He said there was need to embrace devolution saying since its inception, many rural areas in the country had developed.
“We are now experiencing the fruits of devolution after 50 years of dependency. Kenyans in the countryside are now able to plan for their immediate needs to be implemented by the devolved units unlike before,” he said.
Kingi said cases of people in the Coast region being given the name ‘squatters’ in their own land should be brought to an end emphasizing that the recommendations by the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission needed to be brought on board as the committee sought to unite Kenyans.
He recommended for the formation of a regional form of security to be under the office of the governor.
County Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organization chairperson Mrs. Witness Tsuma called for a fair share of representation for persons living with disabilities in both county and national governments.
