ODM Deletes Tweet Purporting Aisha Jumwa’s Support For Imran In Kibra

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party on Tuesday announced that Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa had thrown her weight behind Imran Okoth in the forthcoming Kibra by-election.

In a tweet on Tuesday afternoon, the party stated that the lawmaker said this during the party’s Parliamentary Group meeting that was attended by ODM leader Raila Odinga at County Hall.

“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, ” said ODM.

“It was a brainstorming meeting which was aimed at fostering unity in the party at the legislative level. PL also used the occasion to introduce our Kibra Candidate Imran to Members.”

The party, however, deleted the tweet without giving any explanation.
