Ng’edo Murugu, a well-known political commentator, shared a photo of Aisha Jumwa, who appeared upset after learning that Gideon Mungaro had defeated her by a wide margin. Despite the fact that the ODM Party’s leader appears to be dominating regional presidential votes, Aisha Jumwa was one of Raila Odinga’s most vocal detractors.
