Malindi Member of Parliament, Aisha Jumwa now says Ruto’s close allies are misleading him to ignore her calls.The Member of parliament has accused Oscar Sudi and Kipchumba Murkomen of sabotaging her political relationship with the Deputy President.
“Ruto can make a good President if only tames his close allies.Kipchumba Murkomen and Oscar Sudi are fighting me because of my influence” Aisha Jumwa said in a statement.
Jumwa has urged Malindi voters to reject the opposition after she was expelled from the party. She has blamed Raila Odinga for allowing members of the opposition to humiliate her in the party.
“It is absurd that a party which claims to be democratic in the country cannot tolerate freedom of speech. I was expelled from ODM just because I spoke my mind and i have no apology to make” the MP added.
Political analysts in the country have interpreted Aisha Jumwa’s exit from ODM differently. Professor Manyora says the Malindi Member of Parliament has dug her political grave as she will not control the masses in her constituency without the help of the opposition.
“Malindi has for a long time been an opposition stronghold. No way Jumwa can withstand the political pressure in the constituency if she maintains working with the Deputy president” Manyora explains.
Political analyst Kisiangani says ODM’s move to expel Jumwa is suicidal.He urges that the Malindi voters will lose trust in Raila Odinga for allowing ODM to expel Aisha Jumwa. Kisiangani further says Jumwa’s expulsion from ODM gives Deputy President, William Ruto an avenue to win many votes in the opposition’s stronghold.
