Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa has refused to apologise as a precondition for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to reconsider its decision to expel her from the party.
This is after ODM leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday said the party would give Jumwa a second chance if she apologised “like Msambweni Member of Parliament Suleiman Dori.”
“Kila mtoto akiomba msahamaha anasamehewa. Juzi kwa chama yetu Dori alilia situlimsamehea. Ata Aisha tulisema akikuja tuketi chini naalie tutaangalia maneno yake. Sisi kama wanachungwa tuko pamoja,” said Mr. Odinga.
Loosely translated: “If a child asks to be pardoned you forgive them. Recently in our party, Suleiman Dori begged for forgiveness and we pardoned him… If Aisha Jumwa also pleads for forgiveness, we shall reconsider her fate.”
