Youths from Nakuru County have called on ODM leader Raila Odinga to respect democracy and women in leadership.

Addressing media at Sinendet in Njoro, the youths led by their chairman Dan Kimani Gitau, said women have contributed a lot in ensuring cohesive society and should not be intimidated by political parties.

The youths were responding to the expulsion of Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa from ODM Party. 

“Our appeal to Odinga is that let him ensure Aisha Jumwa is back in ODM so that she can serve the people of her constituency. Failure to do so we shall mobilize women so that they can boycott all political rallies by Raila in this country,” said Kimani.

The lawmaker was expelled for reportedly supporting Deputy President William Ruto's 2022 presidential bid.

She has, however, remained defiant saying she must be allowed to serve her 5-year term.

Alongside Aisha, Msambweni MP Suleiman Dori was also in trouble but survived expulsion after he apologized to the party.

However, on Monday Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa found reprieve after Political Parties Disputes Tribunal temporarily stopped her expulsion from ODM.

The tribunal stopped the removal of Jumwa's name from the Orange Democratic Movement membership list and ordered for an inter-parties hearing on March 8.
