Rebel Coast MPs Suleiman Dori ( Msambweni) and his Malindi counterpart Aisha Jumwa have said they will not appear before the ODM disciplinary committee on October 10.
The ODM Disciplinary Committee had summoned the duo to show cause on why disciplinary action should not be taken against them for openly declared their support for Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
The two have now dared party leader Raila Odinga to sack them and prepare for the worst in the Coast region which has for long been his key stronghold.
Jumwa said she will go on holiday in Malindi if free on October 10 but will not to meet the disciplinary committee.
“There is no letter that I was given to appear in ODM disciplinary committee, on that day I will be having a lot of work in my constituency, but If I will have no job on October 10 I will go for holiday”.
They spoke during a funds drive for Shomani Girls high school which was also graced by Ruto at Kakuyuni, Malindi.
There are claims that over 30 elected coastal leaders have ganged up to support the ODM rebels.
Dori who also doubles up as ODM’s Coast Parliamentary Group Chairman said they have shifted their support to the DP because ‘it is his time’.
Jumwa who is the ODM Parliamentary Service Commissioner said she will not be threatened or intimidated for supporting Ruto.
She recalled how hard she worked for Raila which even led to her arrest and wondered how this time their names are hitting headlines for allegedly betraying the party.
She dared the ODM party to remove her from the position of Commissioner over her stand.
