(KDRTV) – Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has approved murder charges against Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa over the killing of a man in Ganda Ward in October last year.

The MP had been arrested after she stormed the home of Reuben Mwambire Katana, an ODM candidate in the by-elections leading to the shooting of a 48-year-old man. The deceased was Katana’s uncle.

Jumwa claimed at the time that Katana was conducting campaigns despite the elapse of the campaign period. She stormed the homestead in the company of her supporters.

However, Katana insisted that he was not conducting campaigns but was meeting his agents to prepare for the elections. Police who had visited the homestead earlier in the day opted to provide security after confirming that it was not a political meeting.

It is believed the deceased was shot in the chest by the lawmaker’s bodyguard identified as Geoffrey Okuto Otieno. Otieno will also be charged alongside the MP.
