Notable Reactions Online As Aisha Jumwa Distances Herself From Raila

ODM Party and DP Ruto are on the receiving end of massive trolls on social media after MP Aisha Jumwa reportedly ditched Tanga Tanga and later rubbished the allegations.

On Tuesday, the defiant member was captured on camera together with the Nasa leader Raila Odinga and other officials from the Orange party.

Reports later circulated on social media that the MP had ditched DP Ruto and shifted allegiance to her party leader and ODM candidate, Bernard Imran Okoth, in the Kibra by-election.

A statement by the ODM’s director of communication Philip Etale fuelled the reports after he posted on his social media accounts that Jumwa was back to her mother party.

“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,” said Etale in a tweet.

However, Etale deleted the tweet hours later raising eyebrows whether his earlier assertions were valid.

But according to Jumwa, who spoke to the Star newspaper, Raila only made a surprise visit to his Parliamentary Service Commission’s Office in the company of the ODM candidate adding that she had not dumped Ruto.

“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 spun is not true,” Jumwa told the Star.

Following the revelations by the MP, many Kenyans on social media gave mixed reactions on social media with many making fun over the twist of events.

Here is what Kenyans had to say over the matter:
