Malindi Constituency legislator Aisha Jumwa will take his murder plea on Thursday October 22. Court report has shown.
Reports reaching Homenews.co.ke desk showed that Judge Njoki Mwangi presiding over the case had ruled that the embattled MP alongside her bodyguard Geoffrey Otieno be remanded for three days.
“The two accused persons shall be remanded at port police station pending psychiatric examination. Pre-bail assessment shall be undertaken on each of the accused.
“Accused to be escorted to Coast General on 21st Oct for psychiatric examination,” ruled Judge Mwangi.
Jumwa and her bodyguard were in October 2019 directly linked to the fatal shooting that occurred during area by-elections.
Chaos erupted in the campaigns which were ongoing in Ganda Ward Kilifi and which left one ODM agent dead.
Her incarceration today was happening despite the MP having secured bail terms in her other graft case over Constituency funds amounting to sh 19 million.
The judge however ruled that the first case on graft was not applicable to the murder case before her.
In her murder case, MP Jumwa was reported to have stormed the venue where ODM meeting was taking place leading to a scuffle that left one ODM agent dead.
Tasked to explain then, she tried to distance herself from the death saying it was the ODM wing which played part in the killing of their agent.
And taking to her Twitter handle on Monday October 19th, Jumwa however mentioned that she was hopeful of winning the case ‘created by her enemies’.
“We shall overcome my people! “Oh I won’t be afraid of the arrows by day. From the hand of the enemy, I can stand my ground with the Lord on my side, For the snares they have set will not succeed,” she wrote.
Alongside her co-accused, Mr. Otieno, they will be detained at Port Police Station until Thursday when they will be taking plea.
