Jumwa, on Tuesday, October 1, was reported to have ditched DP William Ruto’s camp.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, ODM party suggested that the MP had abandoned Ruto’s team and returned to her former party, ODM.

“Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa says ODM is her home and her DNA is ODM. She says she fully supports Bernard Okoth Imran, our candidate for the Kibra Parliamentary seat in the November 7 by-election,” read the tweet.

On her part, the lawmaker explained that Raila had made a surprise visit to her Parliamentary Service Commission’s Office refuting claims that she had not vowed to support the party’s candidate in the upcoming Kibra by-election.

“I have not dumped Ruto or endorsed Imran. Raila made a surprise visit to my Parliamentary Service Commission’s office this afternoon.

“This was after he attended the ODM Parliamentary Group meeting at County Hall that I did not attend!” she stated.
