She was holding the first meeting at her Kakuyuni home on Fridaysince her release on bail where she accused some coast politicians of pushing for her arrest. She also also added that even if she jailed, she will still remain to be counted among Mijikenda leaders who fought hard to defend their people.
Jumwa took a swipe at ODM and its leader, Raila Odinga, stating that Raila has never been a spokesman of the Mijikenda and will never be. She urged her community to stand firm to get their demands right.
