Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa promise to remain undefeated over claimed events aimed at terminating her politically.



Speaking outside the Mombasa Law Courts after she was charged with corruption, Ms Jumwa said her arraignment is politically motivated, but she will fight back.



 Ms Jumwa supports Deputy President William Ruto and is among his key allies in the region since she decamped from the Orange Democratic Movement.


“I know all this is being done to fight me because of my stand. In two weeks, they are planning to bring me here again to charge me with murder, but I want to tell them I will not kneel down to them on their attempts to bring me down,” said Ms Jumwa who was accompanied by her lawyers.



She warned the courts against being used to settle political scores. On her allegations that other charges are being planned against her, Ms Jumwa said she will ensure that they are defeated.



“They have framed everything, but I will remain in this country and I will not be defeated by them,” she said.



The murder charge that Ms Jumwa is linked to killing of Mr Michael Jola Ngumbao, uncle of Ganda MCA Ruben Mwamure Katana during the Ganda by-election last year.



Ms Jumwa together with Mr Geofrey Okuto, they said to have been committed in the death of Mr Ngumbao Jola who was shot dead at Mshongaleni Pendukiani in Malindi on October 15, 2019, after the legislator and her assistants attacked Mr Mwamure’s home where he was holding a meeting with his supporters.



The two were arrested and later released on Sh500,000 cash bail each by a Mombasa court pending investigation.



On Monday, Ms Jumwa was charged with conspiracy to defraud the Malindi National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) of Sh19 million, conflict of interest, money laundering and acquisition of proceeds of crime.



She was released on a Sh 5 million bond with a surety of the same amount or an alternative of Sh2 million cash bail after she denied the charges.




The MP's co-accused, who pleaded to the charges on Friday, had their bond terms reduced from Sh10 million to Sh2 million bond each with surety or an alternative Sh500,000 cash bail.



The case will be mentioned on September 21 for pre-trial.
