Jumwa is accused of conspiracy to commit fraud by paying she 19 million to multiserve contractors through the Malindi CDF kitty. The lawyer who were representing her in the case.
Danstan Omar, Jared magolo, shadrack wambui and Titus kirui said they won't surrender defence documents they had planned to use in the case until the lawmaker pays them for services rendered the lawyer had been summoned to court by Chief magistrate Edna Nyaloti over the stalled case.
The prosecution however argued that the lawyer were employing delay tactics in the matter. It wasn't immediately clear how much was owed to the quarter. Following the impasse that lasted more than 20 minutes magistrate Nyaloti ordered the prosecution to supply fresh documents to Jumwa's current lawyer Cliff Ombeta and Duncan Osoro.
Omari, Magolo, Wambui and Kirui had earlier Wednesday asked the magistrate to justify the summonses she had issued against them, arguing the action wasn’t anchored in law.
Magistrate Nyaloti directed that the matter be mentioned on Thursday, August 12.
