Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has dismissed reports she is backing ODM aspirant Imram Okoth for the Kibra by-election.
This is after ODM head of communications, Philip Etale, in a Facebook post, said Jumwa had ditched Deputy President William Ruto in favour of ODM leader Raila Odinga.
He wrote, “Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa today officially ditched Team Tangatanga. She attended the party Parliamentary Group meeting at County Hall…”
But in a rejoinder, Jumwa said Raila went into her office unannounced and introduced Imram to her.
The Malindi MP went on to say she didn’t know who Imran was.
“I was not even aware of ODM having a meeting. Raila invited me to greet Imran and I accompanied him. I didn’t even know him. That is all and whatever is being span is not true,” Jumwa said.
Raila had a meeting with ODM Members of Parliament, where he introduced them to Imram.
