Aisha Jumwa with William Ruto.
Malindi member of parliament, Aisha Jumwa, was one of the politicians accompanying the deputy president in Isiolo on Saturday 13. Ruto and his troops were leading in a funds drive for over 70 churches across Isiolo county. The event took place at Ngarema in Isiolo North.
Though the event was purely a funds drive, politics played in a big way. It is the event that saw Ruto answer his boss president Uhuru Kenyatta after he asked him to resign.
Uhuru had asked Ruto to resign accusing him of double play. Uhuru said that it was dishonest for Ruto to ride on government projects while he has been criticizing the same government.
Ruto answered the president and said that he won't resign. Ruto alluded that his office is provided for by the Constitution adding that he was elected by the people of Kenya. Ruto also said that he has never disrespected his boss.
Ruto's close ally Aisha Jumwa also descended on president Uhuru accusing him of launching small projects. Aisha argued that it was shameful to see the president launching taps in Nairobi. She added that such jobs belonged to the members of parliament and MCAs.
Aisha asked the president to stick to the big four agenda, which she claimed to be his size. She said that it was too low for the president to launch small projects which are not his size. The vocal legislator also added that maybe the president was shy that big four had turned out to be big fall.

These words by Aisha came at a time when Ruto allies have been accused of hauling insults to the president. During an earlier interview, Ruto disassociated himself with these talks and saying that every leader have a mind of their own.
