"There's no doubt Malindi MP Hon Aisha Jumwa is one of the fast-rising women leaders in this country. She is strong-willed, has a rare gift of the garb and is amazingly talented. 

Her expulsion from ODM is thus unfortunate and punctures the credibility of ODM as a party that parades itself as a foremost promoter of democracy and women leadership. 

We must call ODM's bluff for unfairly targeting Aisha and going a step further to expel her on very flimsy grounds.

 It's unbelievable that even though another ODM MP, Suleiman Dori, faced similar accusations, he was spared the axe. Isn't this witch-hunt and unfair treatment of women? It's abhorrent and unacceptable.

 I encourage my sister Aisha to fight it all away and shame her detractors. 

As for ODM and its owners, stop this hypocrisy! It stinks."
