Nairobi - A Governor says that he has not quit the Amani National Congress ANC for the Jubilee Party just yet.
Lamu Governor Issa Timamy says that he has not quit the ANC and says that he is yet to decide where to go to come the 2017 elections.
He admits that he has in the past stated that he is willing to leave the ANC but that it has not happened.
Timamy was not present together with 40 leaders who joined the Jubilee Party over the weekend.
He says that at the moment he is simply concentrating on building Lamu.
" I have not made any political move and I will not be making any soon," he stated.
According to Timamy, he is still not in any position to divulge details of what comes next.
" Politics will take centre stage in 2017. In 2016, we are thinking of improving the lives of the day to day people," he added.
Lamu MP Athman Shariff has already stated that he will join the Jubilee Party ahead of the 2017 polls.
