The fate of Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa as a commissioner with the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) now hangs by a thread after her party — ODM — said it will fasttrack her removal for openly supporting Deputy President William Ruto.
ODM nominated Ms Jumwa to the lucrative position after the August 8, 2017, General Election.
However, the outspoken legislator turned her back against her party by openly supporting Mr Ruto’s bid to succeed his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, in 2022.
Ms Jumwa has been one of the key personalities and a proponent of Mr Ruto’s 2022 bid as depicted in the many succession political rallies held across the country in open defiance of President Kenyatta on the need to slow down the electioneering mood in the country.
The Constitution in Article 251 provides the formula of removal from office a member of a constitutional commission.
