VIDEO: Raila and ODM MPs Tear Into Aisha Jumwa at Funeral. On Saturday, October 26, during the burial of the late Gumbao Jola, an uncle to Ganda Ward MCA Reuben Katana, mourners spoke angrily, stating that justice needed to be served after the ODM supporter’s death.
It is alleged that the deceased died after Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa stormed a venue where a meeting was ongoing and in the scuffle that ensued, the ODM agent was shot dead.
During the burial, mourners who were given the chance to speak tore into the MP for causing the drama.
While addressing the mourners, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed cited that the deceased killer was known, adding that investigations were not needed.
“I came here to pass my condolence and conduct my own investigations because it seems to be taking too long. I want to pose a question to you mourners, who killed Michael Gumbao Jola?
“What other investigation is needed yet Malindi people have spoken?” he questioned.
Further, he stated that Ms Jumwa’s character had changed since he joining Deputy President William Ruto’s camp.
“We will remove her from the parliamentary service seat, where she is under the ODM Party because we gave that seat to Malindi residents and not to her,” threatened the Suna East MP.
Another mourner, who was only identified as Beatrice, asked the Malindi MP to stop referring to herself as Mekatilili.
“Mekatilili wa Menza was a woman who fought against the colonialists and Aisha Jumwa should stop comparing herself to her. I want to ask, which colonialists did Aisha find when she came to the ODM meeting?
“Let Mekatilili rest in peace and Jumwa should not malign her name,” she spoke.
On his part, Magarini MP Michael Kingi thanked some of the people restrained him from Ms Jumwa, after the scuffle.
“I want to thank the comrades who prevented me from engaging with that woman during the chaos because her aim was to make sure that the by-election did not happen because she knew she had already been defeated,” Kingi stated.
