A resident of Ganda Ward, Kilifi County has given his account of the events surrounding the death of Mr. Gumbao Jola, the man who was shot dead following a fracas that was allegedly caused by Aisha Jumwa during an ODM Agents meeting.
According to the resident, Aisha Jumwa stormed an ODM meeting at Mr. Reuben Katana’s (ODM Candidate) residence and took issue with a number of officers who she had allegedly sent on a mission.
“I sent you on a mission, why are you still dilly dallying? Let me handle my issues in my own way,” Aisha Jumwa told officers present at the scene. This is according to the resident whose Video Clip is doing rounds on the interwebs.
Aisha then demanded that she is shown ODM candidate Reuben Katana.
“Where is Reuben’s house? Who is Reuben ?” Asked an Angry Aisha Jumwa.
That was the cause of tension and chaos. Jumwa then snatched a Pistol from her bodyguard and upon being shown who Reuben was, she aimed a shot a the ODM candidate and it is at that point that the bullet landed on Mr. Gumbao Jola.
Mr. Gumbao was shot on the chest and was pronounced dead on arrival at the Malindi Sub County Hospital.
