Wednesday October 16, 2019-Embattled Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has distanced herself from the association with the murder and insisted that the ODM party needed to be held responsible.
Speaking during his arrest last night, Jumwa blamed ODM for death of Gumbao Jola, an uncle to Reuben Katana, ODM's candidate for the ward by-election.
"When I reached the event, I met a guy called Agunga who claimed that I would not interfere with the event as the police were around. I don’t know what the police were doing in the area. I believe ODM had a sinister move as the campaign periods were over. ODM should be held responsible for the death of the deceased. I would like to urge my followers to be calm and remain in their houses.”
"We don't know how the deceased died or who killed him. Reports claim that it was my bodyguard or the police or anonymous people like Agunga. We want justice for the Ganda residents," Jumwa stated in a press conference on Tuesday after the incident occurred.
Jola died from a gunshot wound during a scuffle between ODM supporters and Aisha Jumwa’s body’s bodyguards.
