Deputy President William Ruto is not yet done with attacking Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Odinga.
Ruto through a tweet today wondered how Raila Odinga has been “pretending” to be women’s champion and at the same time expel a woman from his party (ODM).
This follows a decision by ODM party to expel Malindi member of parliament Aisha Jumwa on disciplinary grounds.
Ruto posted “You who’ve masqueraded as champions of women, now in your true colours expel a woman elected in her own right after defeating men and blackmail her to kneel and worship you as an ‘apology’. Crime?associating with elected DP of GoK you have ‘handshake’ with. Tragically deceitful “
Aisha Jumwa was expelled from ODM on 1st March this year.
ODM’s disciplinary committee had recommended the expulsion of Jumwa and Dori over gross misconduct. The MPs were summoned in October to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee after they openly declared their support for the DP. They ignored the summonses.
Last June, Jumwa was on record saying that she had made up her mind to support DP Ruto as he is ready for the country’s top job irking the party leadership.
However, in October she changed tune and declared that she respects Raila Odinga as her party leader and was in constant communication with him.
The National Governing Council is composed of the ODM League, National Executive Council, Youth League, the National Election Board and county coordinating committee officials.
Raila Odinga on Tuesday 2nd March while speaking at Toi Market in Kibra said if Aisha Jumwa apologizes to ODM her apology will be looked at. But the defiant Malindi MP said she cannot apologize.
