Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has approved murder charges against Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa.
The MP found herself in trouble last year when an uncle to an Orange Democratic Movement aspirant in Ganda ward mini polls was shot dead.
She was arrested at her Kakuyuni home in Malindi after a 48-year-old man was shot in the chest and killed.
Police announced that the MP and her aide Geoffrey Okuto Otieno were under investigation for the murder of Ngumbao Jola at the homestead of Reuben Mwambire Katana, the ODM candidate for the Ganda ward by-election.
The firearm used to shoot the uncle to the then ODM candidate belonged to the lawmaker.
The cartridge of the firearm ammunition packaging is licensed to the MP.
The man was shot dead on October 15, 2019, during chaos involving the MP and Orange Democratic Movement supporters at Ganda in Kilifi county.
The incident had occurred at the Penduliani home of an ODM candidate for the Ganda ward by-election Reuben Katana. Katana and other leaders were allegedly meeting agents to prepare for the mini poll.
Jumwa and her team are reported to have forced themselves into the home following reports that a team of ODM leaders were meeting youths. Earlier, armed police officers had visited the home.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission had declared that Monday as the final day for campaigns. However, the police had later provided security after being informed that the meeting had nothing to do with campaigns.
