An Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) communications director, Philip Etale, on Sunday, September 15, trolled Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa after a photo of her with DP William Ruto at the beach surfaced.
It is understood that the legislator decamped to the DP's camp after she was expelled from the Raila Odinga-led party for gross misconduct.
Poking holes in the DP's way of engaging politics, Etale insinuated that other leaders had departed from his (DP) camp and that Jumwa was the only one hanging on.
The photo shows Ruto, wearing an orange reflector and the lawmaker spotting a red dress walking down the beach without much of the pomp associated with top political leaders.
"So after all the noise and braggadocio, only Hon. Aisha Jumwa has been left to dance in Tangatanga. Lol! The rest of the MPs have fled back to their original base," posted Etale.
Several netizens seemed to be siding with the director noting that Jumwa had lost grip of her constituency ever since she jumped ship.
"I was in Malindi last week and I can confirm even the ground is not with her," concurred Isaac Omungo.
Jumwa was kicked out of ODM party in March 2019 but the move was later suspended by the court after her lawyer, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, obtained interim orders restraining ODM and the Registrar of Political Parties from taking further actions against her.
She was accused of advancing the interests of another party by openly campaigning for the DP.
