The Kenyanpost news

Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa is set to face murder and assault charges, over last year’s shooting in Ganda Ward that left one person dead and several others injured . This after the approval from The Director of Public Prosecutions, who approved the charges, said Jumwa will face the charges alongside her aide Geoffrey Otieno.

The incident occurred  on 29th October 2019 after MP Jumwa reportedly stormed a meeting of ODM agents at a house belonging to Reuben Katana, the ODM candidate and eventual winner of the by-election.

Jumwa allegedly demanded to know why such a meeting would be held at night after the campaign period had lapsed.

The Ganda Ward seat fell vacant after the nullification of the election of Abdul Omar, an independent candidate who was also supported by Jumwa.The man was shot dead in a scuffle between rival Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party supporters in Ganda Ward in Malindi, Kilifi County, in October last year.

Jumwa is expected to present herself for case hearing having that she has been out on bond for the same case , she cannot be arrested.
