Wednesday October 2, 2019-Malindi MP, MacDonald Mariga, has dismissed claims that she had endorsed ODM candidate Imran Okoth in Kibera by- election.
On Tuesday, ODM tweeted that Jumwa had ditched DP Ruto’s camp after Mr. Odinga visited her at the Parliamentary Service Commission office.
“Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa says ODM is her home and her DNA is ODM. She says she fully supports Bernard Imran Okoth, our candidate for the Kibra Parliamentary seat in the November 7 by-election,” ODM wrote on Facebook.
The post was later deleted as Jumwa denied the claims insisting that Mr. Odinga’s visit was unexpected after he attended the ODM Parliamentary Group meeting at County Hall.
Jumwa insisted that she did not attend the said meeting as claimed by ODM leaders.
“I did join H.E Dr. William Ruto and other legislators in a meeting with Divine Church elders at Mash Park Hotel, Nairobi to drum up support for Mariga for Kibra MP,” Jumwa said on Tuesday evening.
