The issue of ODM members and leaders working with the Jubilee Government has now become a pain in the neck for the Orange Party.

The Party’s shocker has already landed of Malindi MP and her Msambweni counterpart Suleiman Dori for going to bed with DP Ruto. A number of MCAs from Homa Bay County have also not been spared.

MP Dori had last year visited Party leader Raila Odinga at his Capitol Hill offices in what many viewed as a visit aimed at brining peace between the embattled Dori and Raila Odinga’s ODM Party.

MP Jumwa on the other hand has not been remorseful and has infact launched a series of attacks aimed at the ODM Party and it’s leadership with the latest victim of her never ending rants being Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho.

Jumwa has accused Joho of being behind the push to expel her from ODM.

“ODM should stop joking. I was in ODM by choice; I was arrested because of [ODM leader] Raila [Odinga]. In Coast, the deputy party leader Ali Hassan Joho has been silent since the intimidation began,” she said.

Jumwa spoke on Wednesday during a meeting to share her development achievements with residents.

ODM’s disciplinary committee in December 2018 recommended the expulsion of Jumwa and Msambweni MP Suleiman Dori for supporting Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid.

However, Raila assured them of a fair hearing.

Jumwa expressed disappointment at Joho’s silence as the disciplinary committee “intimidates” her.

She said she vigorously campaigned for ODM in 2017.

A row is now simmering between Kilifi and Mombasa leaders.

Kilifi North MP Owen Baya, Woman Representative Gertrude Mbeyu and Jubilee Nominated Senator Christine Zawadi said Joho should not interfere with Kilifi politics.

Jumwa questioned why Joho has never pushed for action against Migori governor Okoth Obado for supporting the DP.

“In five years, ODM should not ask me where I will go. I will have finished their contract,” she said.

The MP said ODM should also call for the expulsion Joho for meeting Baringo Senator Gideon Moi because he is not in ODM.

She said her 2022 decision to support Ruto was final, though she said she is still in ODM in the meantime.

Baya said, “If they see Coast people waking up they begin intimidating them.”
