I was ‘ambushed’ in my office – MP Aisha Jumwa clarifies ‘meeting’ with Raila (video)

Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has broken her silence about her alleged meeting with ODM party leader Raila Odinga and backing ODM’s Kibra candidate Imran Okoth.

Speaking during faithful of African Divine Church elders on Tuesday evening, Jumwa said the alleged meeting with Raila never took place and she never endorsed Imran as reported by ODM’s communication department and section of the press.

“Mimi nilisema naitwa sishuki. Hapo sikuongea chochote, nilivamiwa tu. Lakini hapa ndo naongea moyo wangu upo (I have always said I’m never jumping ship, I never spoke during the alleged reunion, they just ambushed me. But this is where my heart is),” she said.

She further asked the elders to vote for Jubilee’s candidate McDonald Mariga in the November 7 poll.[0]=68.ARC80bHPYU_VNRaWxw8X_77Bayjbgfrch1yyRFiKlwDXLe86hsuE8T6NApA8x9ekoWSJDoaQ4Bk72_mitPOJn7ida1Db6rycUz_ydKqFNgJRzeAZsm1fAfCzkKaxeosoXxxGgfDxlF0eCrfrU_Fm_to2UfEaRS9wq5vEampi8FDzlH498ehKAsIrj0BHD0pGrnn2XumbRtIJCMWjIn75Gqqiva2O3rqzcAuKJlueOVpbdWHMfxWk3MUq0Y6JMl9s34vuL-B2jZ9WzZjezuQWrE5Jjr6k9fS3OHZJohWXgRtjQqfXgd8o-PTvNowIAgCR1VmWes3puGOEkx7l62py5lncqo_f&__tn__=-R

On Tuesday afternoon, the legislator started trending after ODM’s Director of Communication Philip Etale posted picture of the Jumwa with Raila and Imran.

“Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa today officially ditched Team Tangatanga and vowed to vigorously campaign for Bernard Okoth Imran for the Kibra Parliamentary Seat. She attended the party Parliamentary Group meeting at County Hall chaired by Party Leader H.E. Raila Odinga. Imran was also introduced to the members,” Etale had written on Facebook.

However, in a rejoinder, Jumwa confirmed that she had neither ditched Ruto’s camp nor endorsed Imran.
