Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has clarified rumours surrounding her divorce from her ex-husband.

Speaking in a recent interview, the lawmaker dismissed claims that she dumped her husband noting that he gave her an ultimatum to choose between the marriage or politics. 

However, Jumwa chose politics and resolved to end their marriage. 

"I was asked to choose my political career or to continue being his wife and I decided not to kill my career," she said.

The staunch DP William Ruto supporter stated that after her divorce, she decided to take a break from marriage, further maintaining that she is not answerable to any man. 

"I am not a wife to anyone neither I'm I answerable to any man in this world. When I became an MCA of Takaungu, the man (her ex-husband) said he cannot be married to a politician," she added. 

However, despite being a divorcée, Jumwa hinted that she has a special someone in her life albeit not divulging much into the matter. 

"When you look at me, do I look like someone who doesn't have a man in her life?" she posed.

In October 2020, Jumwa and her alleged lover identified as Geoffrey Okuto were charged with murder on Thursday.

Both pleaded not guilty when they were charged over the murder of Ngumbao Jola who was killed in chaos that ensued during campaigns for a by-election in Ganda Ward on October 15, 2019.

Court documents showed that Okuto, who is the first accused person in the case, has been in a stable relationship with Jumwa after the legislator divorced her husband some 20 years ago.
