Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has now declared political war against Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.

Jumwa on Saturday blamed Joho for her woes in ODM.

The vocal legislator is facing disciplinary action in ODM for supporting DP William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.

Political temperatures have been rising in Malindi after the ODM National Executive Council adopted disciplinary committee report recommending the expulsion of Jumwa and Suleiman Dori (Msambweni).

The fate of the two MPs now lies with the party’s National Governing Council after NEC adopted the decision to kick them out of the party last week on Thursday.

“I will deal with you and not the dogs you send here in Malindi to insult me. I will deal with the master, not the messenger. We respect the ODM party and its leadership but we do not respect you (Joho) because you don’t respect yourself,’’ she said.

Jumwa was addressing journalists after attending a burial at Msabaha area in her constituency.

“I would like to assure Malindi people that their MP for the next five years in accordance with the constitution is Aisha Jumwa. I came to give you an assurance, those speaking otherwise are busybodies who have been sent by a well-known person,’’ she said.

The legislator said Kilifi county has an ODM governor (Amason Kingi) who does not demand to be respected because he is a true leader.

“Kingi does not behave like Joho sending people to demand respect from fellow leaders,’’ she said.

Earlier Malindi women asked the Joho and the entire ODM leadership to give Malindi a break and stop bringing by-election politics in the area as this will divide the united constituency.

Already, Jumwa and Dori have been dewhipped from all parliamentary committees.
