ODM Youth leaders have fired a warning shot to Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa just hours after the Vocal MP was arrested following the death of an ODM supporter.
On Tuesday saw Aisha Jumwa storm an Agents meeting at the residence of ODM candidate for the Ganda Ward by-elections Reuben Mwamure Katana. A scuffle ensued and in the middle of the chaos, an ODM agent who was identified as Mr. Gumbao Jola was shot dead.
Jola was reportedly shot on the chest and was pronounced dead on arrival at the Malindi Sub County Hospital.
Following her arrest, Aisha Jumwa was detained at the Kilindini Police Station in Mombasa before being presented to Court on Wednesday.
Angry ODM youths have now warned Aisha Jumwa of dire consequences following her actions on Tuesday.
Speaking from Ganda, Kilifi County, ODM youth leader from Nairobi County Brian Yobra said that the seat will go to ODM despite the dirty politics being played by Aisha Jumwa.
“We have come in peace to take the Ganda Ward Seat but if you feel like you can kill everyone to bag the seat, we are ready for you. As Long as we as ODM Youth leaders are still alive, the Ganda Ward Seat will go to ODM whether you like it or not,” Said Brian Yobra.
