Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa freed on Ksh.4M cash bail, or a surety of the same after spending half a week in the police cells.


Her bodyguard, Geoffrey Otieno also freed on a Ksh.1M cash bail or a surety of the same cash.


The legislator and her bodyguard appeared before a Mombasa court on Friday to answer murder charges.


The duo is involved on Ngumbao Jola’s death during the Ganda Ward by-elections last year.


Earlier on Thursday, the MP and her bodyguard slipped to take plea in the murder case over a medical report mix-up.


The two had appeared before High Court Judge Njoki Mwangi.


During the sitting, Judge Mwangi challenged the validity of MP Jumwa’s report as it bore the signature of a psychiatrist not acknowledged in the court.
