Why Aisha Jumwa is the Reason Coast MPs Have Deserted DP William Ruto



DP William Ruto has been isolated by Coast MPs who are no longer comfortable being in his camp. Also, the leaders who have been warming up to the DP have either moved back to their parties or have given his political events a wide berth. MPs MPs Owen Baya (Kilifi North), Michael Kingi (Magarini), Gertrude Mbeyu (Kilifi Woman Rep) and Governor Amason Kingi  who was beginning to warm up to the DP have all deserted him.

According to a report on The Standard, analysts say besides harsh disciplinary action meted out to Jumwa and Msambweni MP Suleiman Dori earlier this year by ODM, Jumwa’s own brand of politics, local grassroots resistance to the DP as well as national politics is behind the reluctance by Coast politicians to associate with Ruto any longer.

Jumwa’s close ties to Ruto and the DP’s reliance on her to penetrate Kilifi is central to the collapse of  Ruto’s network in this region,” says Mohamed Hassan, a local political analyst.Hassan believes local leaders resent Jumwa’s “overbearing” character and her “monopoly” of the DP, adding that if Ruto wants to win Coast he should rethink his dependence on the Malindi MP. The report on The Standard says.

Gideon Mungaro, the former Kilifi North MP who lost his seat for associating with Ruto is now back to ODM and even Mung’aro campaigned for the party’s candidate in the Ganda by election. Jumwa has also escalated her wars with Kingi and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, blaming them for her recent arrest in the wake of the Ganda violence.
