Ali Hassan Joho has announced William Kazungu Kingi as his running mate for the August 8 General Election.
Mombasa Governor unveiled the Technical University of Mombasa lecturer following the decision by his Deputy Governor who ditched the Orange Democratic Movement Party.
Hazel Katana earlier had joined Jubilee Party blaming the governor for mistreatment.
“I am very comfortable in a classroom, but this, deputy governor, is huge. I thank my brother and friend Joho for trusting me and I will not let him down because we have already won the elections,” said Kazungu Kingi.
“Cosmetic solutions to land issues will not work at all. Dishing few land title deeds out will not solve, we must plan to issue everyone with title deeds for them to live decent lives.”
Settling on Kingi
Joho said that he settled for Dr Kingi as his running mate owing to his vast experience in administrative issues and immense contribution to matters affecting people of Mombasa and the wider Coast residents.
“I am pleased to state that after consulting stakeholders and the people of Mombasa, I have settled on Dr William Kingi as my running mate in my race to continue serving the people of Mombasa as their Governor,” Governor Joho said.
Dr Kingi is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Business at the Technical University of Mombasa (TUM).
He holds a PhD in Human Resource Management from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) Nairobi and a Master of Science in HRM from the same University.
He has been lecturing since 2008 first at a part-time lecturer at JKUAT and now on full time basis at TUM
