Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has thrown her weight behind the Umoja Summit Party of Kenya, accusing Orange Democratic Movement and Jubilee parties of using and dumping Coast residents.

This came hours after police scuttled plans to disrupt a meeting by the Embrace movement made up of women leaders supporting the Building Bridges Initiative at Karisa Maitha grounds, Kilifi.

During a funeral in Mtondia village, Tezo ward, Ms Jumwa said the people of Kilifi had been misused by the parties they supported wholeheartedly.

“There is time for everything. Mijikendas are tired. If a local party will be our salvation, then I am fully behind USPK,” the lawmaker said.

Ms Jumwa has distanced herself from ODM — the party that took her to Parliament — and now supports Deputy President William Ruto.

Kilifi North MP Owen Baya promised to call a meeting of leaders from the Coast “to chart a new path outside of the dominant parties”.

Though he has not declared his stand, Mr Baya has criticised ODM “for failing to recognise the efforts of Kilifi people and our loyalty to the party”.

However, he is still pushing his agenda through ODM and is close to party leader Raila Odinga.

Ms Jumwa has been at war with the ODM leadership and remains opposed to the March 9, 2018 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Odinga, saying it is a waste of time and resources.
