The Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has found a way to nail Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa.
Jumwa is the co-accused in the murder of an ODM supporter, Gumbao Jola.
Alloy Kemo, the Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions, revealed that they had gathered more evidence.
The evidence allegedly incriminates the Malindi MP.
In its possession, the DPP has an AK47 and another riffle that the suspects reportedly used to murder Gumbao Jola.
Additionally, they collected cartridges at the crime scene.
The DPP will present these exhibits in court.
DPP Noordin Haji’s office also revealed that they drew sketch plans of the crime scene.
They will also present other relevant documents, including in-depth post-mortem results.
WitnessesThe DPP will produce 30 witnesses in court that will testify against Aisha Jumwa.
Jared Magolo, Aisha Jumwa’s lawyer, requested for more time to examine the evidence that the DPP tabled in court.
However, the DPP opposed the application, noting that it was just a ploy to delay the case hearing.
Justice Anne Onginjo, the presiding judge, postponed the hearing to July 2021.
Justice Onginjo took over the case after the recusal of Justice Njoki Mwangi.
Ongijo directed that both the DPP and Aisha Jumwa should be ready for trial in July.
The parties have for months to prepare for trial by examining court documents.
The murderGumbao Jola died on 15th October 2019.
An unknown person shot him during an altercation between ODM supporters and Aisha Jumwa.
Aisha Jumwa and her bodyguard Geoffrey Otieno are key suspects in the matter.
The DPP charged them with murder in 2019, but the court released them on a 1.5 million Kenyan shillings cash bail.
