Nairobi - An ODM leader has accused some sections of the media of selling him to the Jubilee Party.
Kilifi Governor Jaffa Kingi says that some media houses are keen on ensuring that he is labelled a Jubilee defector and to force him back in his plans to seek re-election come the 2017 elections.
According to Kingi, those carrying such stories should cease and apologize.
" Some media houses are keen to report that I have dumped ODM for Jubilee. That is simply not true and I ask that they apologize or face legal action," he told News24 on phone.
Kingi says he is happy in ODM.
" I will not leave ODM and I will support Raila Odinga for the Presidency in 2017," he continued.
Kingi has been one of the few vocal ODM leaders in the region, which has in recent times seen defections of the highest order.
