Aisha Jumwa – Biography

Aisha Jumwa she is a Kenyan Politician who belongs to Orange Democratic Movement and she is the Women Representatives for Kilifi County.

After being arrested over hate speech remarks with other Member of Parliament she said she would pay for the renovation of Muthaiga police cell.  “Though there was water and we could clean ourselves, no human being should be subjected to such treatment. The situation was inhumane and is not even fit for criminals. We were not allowed to change our clothes. Imagine a woman staying in the same clothes for four days. Visits by relatives and friends were denied. Most of our relatives came but they were not allowed to see us. Only my son and CORD co-principals were allowed to see us once. I will go back to Muthaiga and pay for the refurbishment of the floor of the cell where I spent three days, so that the next ‘guests’ can stay in a dignified place.”

Aisha Jumwa – News

ODM has written to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission seeking clarification on whether a sitting MP can run for another parliamentary seat before first resigning.

The party is seeking the IEBC’s interpretation after Kilifi woman representative Aisha Jumwa expressed interest in the Malindi parliamentary seat, which has just been vacated by Dan Kazungu.

The details of the letter emerged yesterday as a war of words between Jubilee and Cord erupted in the county regarding Philip Charo’s candidature.

Charo is a youthful banker who declared his interest in the seat for the 2017 general election long before President Uhuru Kenyatta nominated Kazungu to the Cabinet in a move that caught many in the constituency unprepared.

ODM executive director Oduor Ong’wen confirmed the party had written to the IEBC seeking clarification on the matter.

But he denied that the clarification had any specific individual in mind, saying the party has many individuals in elected positions who have expressed an interest in running.

“It is not just about Malindi, but we shall be fielding a candidate in Kericho as well. We are seeking a legal position and it’s not about an individual,” he said.

He said there are MCAs and officers in other elective positions that have expressed a wish to run in both Kericho and Malindi and the party had decided intercede on their behalf.

Kazungu has been appointed Mining Cabinet Secretary and Jumwa has indicated she wants to abandon her current seat and replace him in Malindi, one of the seven constituencies in Kilifi county.

Sources have told the Star that, in writing the letter, ODM is borrowing a leaf from the precedent set by Joseph Nkaissery, Charles Keter and Dan Kazungu, all of whom have been nominated to the Cabinet while still serving as MPs.

Nkaissery resigned as Kajiado Central MP only after President Uhuru Kenyatta had appointed and sworn him in as the Interior Cabinet Secretary.

In Aisha Jumwa case, ODM is pegging its hopes on this precedent and calculates she should only resign after she wins in the by-election after Kazungu’s resignation.

Speaking to the Star in Kilifi yesterday, Mijikenda Youth Forum patron Nyonga wa Makemba told Kilifi ODM vice chair Teddy Mwambire to desist from claiming that Charo is ODM’s candidate.

“Teddy Mwambire should stop making such reckless remarks,” said Nyonga, a Mung’aro ally.

In response, Mwambire, an ally of Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, claimed Charo had sought direct nomination from ODM, a request that was declared undemocratic.
