Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa spends her weekend in Police cells after she was unable to raise Sh 4 Million cash bail on time for her release on Friday.


The court granted Hon. Jumwa a cash bail of Ksh.4 million or Ksh.3 million bond while her co-accused Geoffrey Okuto, who is her bodyguard, was granted Ksh.1.5 million cash bail or bond of Ksh.1 million.


High Court judge Njoki Mwangi granted them bail saying the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions failed to give sufficient reasons to convince the court to deny them bond.


The court, however, directed the two to deposit their passports in court before being released and that they present themselves to court whenever they are required.


The high court judge warned them against interfering with the witnesses.


They are accused of killing Ngumbao Jola, an ODM Party supporter, during the Ganda Ward by-election campaigns in October last year. They denied the charges.
