The Sh19 million graft allegations brought towards former Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa by the director of public prosecutions have been dropped. 

President William Ruto proposed Jumwa for the Public Service and Gender portfolio.

Jumwa was charged with murder and was involved in a Sh19 million graft scandal prior to her nomination.

The two cases were formally brought against the Public Service and Gender Cabinet nominee in court.

She was charged with embezzling CDF funding.

She was one of the 22 Cabinet nominees that Ruto introduced in the belief that they will aid him in carrying out the Kenya Kwanza agenda.

As part of the criteria to uphold ethics and integrity, the Constitution stipulates that they must all be approved by the National Assembly before being permitted to take office.

But some of the President's picks are accused of crimes including murder, rape, and corruption.

Additionally, some MPs have committed to thoroughly investigate the candidates for the government.

The MPs have challenged several of those cabinet nominees and questioned if they are qualified to serve in CS roles.

The ethics watchdog, on the other hand, signaled an intense scrutiny of Ruto's candidates by promising to send Parliament integrity intelligence reports on Cabinet nominees.

On Tuesday, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission announced that it was gathering reports on each nominee's eligibility in order to disqualify those with dubious integrity.

The EACC spoke as the Opposition increased the pressure on Parliament and the anti-graft authorities to uphold their responsibilities.
