Relief to Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa after a ballistic report of the shooting that led to the death of Ngumbao Jola in October 2019 in Ganda Ward, in Kilili Couny came out yesterday.
Reports indicate that Jumwa did not shoot dead the deceased as was earlier alleged in the October 29, 2019, incident during the Ganda Ward by-election which was marred with chaos.
This was after the firebrand legislator stormed a meeting that was organized by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) resulting into shooting and eventual death of the 48 year-old Ngumbao.
The report released yesterday Thursday July,8, 2021 is said to have implicated his bodyguard Geoffrey Otieno Okuto.
Jumwa however is not yet off the hook as Director Of Public Prosecutions has requested for the files to go through the report before making a decision on the murder case.
This comes as Jumwa’s defense team is pushing the Director of Public Prosecution to throw out the murder case against her and clear her name.
Following the new development, after the report’s findings, Jumwa who used to be accompanied by Okuto who was also reported to be her lover turned her back on him.
Further information also indicate that the legislator also asked the Mombasa court to immediately withdraw the legal services she had hired for her bodyguard Okuto.
“Mr Okuto was served with the application seeking to withdraw the surety, and he is aware (of it),” Omari told the court.
The lawmaker also asked the courts to cancel the bond for which her daughter had stood in for Mr. Okuto, with the victim calling for more time to look for an advocate.
“Since Jumwa has instructed the lawyers not to represent me, I ask the court to give me more time to look for an advocate. I request for the court’s indulgence,” he stated.
