Aisha Jumwa Corruption Charges Takes New Shape after She Asked This

Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa and six others facing corruption charges of Kshs19 million, want their trial to start afresh following the transfer of a magistrate who was hearing it.

Through lawyer Danstan Omari, the vocal legislator told Mombasa Chief Magistrate, Martha Mutuku, that starting afresh would allow for the observation of the demeanour of the witnesses lined up against her.

“We propose that the case starts afresh so that the court can observe the demeanour of witnesses. That’s the position of the entire defence,” Omari stated.

Jumwa is implicated in Ksh19 million fraud case where she is accused of taking part in unlawful transactions in the Malindi National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF).

Jumwa is accused together with other officials from Malindi. According to the court documents, the offense is said to have been committed between May 14 and October 12, 2018, in Malindi.

She was since charged with conflict of interest, acquisition of proceeds of crime and money laundering. In the previous hearing, Jumwa and the co-accused denied the charges.
