The DPP said it had been alleged that several businesses controlled by Jumwa through her proxies fraudulently received funds amounting to Sh57 million from the National Government Constituency Development Fund and in turn transmitted the cash to her. The DPP was however only able to establish the misappropriation of Sh19 million.
In a statement on Thursday, Haji said the culprits were implicated in a conspiracy to commit corruption, conflict of interest, money laundering, forgery and acquisition of proceeds of crime.
“Due to the complex nature of the financial transactions involved, the ODPP and DCI met on several occasions to ensure all areas were covered,” the statement said.
It was revealed that Sh19 million was paid to Multserve Contractors Ltd for the construction of the Malindi sub-county education office.
The procurement process was flouted in favour of Multserve, the statement said.
“Multserve Contractors Limited received an amount of Kshs. 19,002,000.00/=, out of which Kshs. 2,500,000.000/= was illegally transferred to Hon. Aisha Jumwa Karisa Katana whilst being a Member of Parliament for Malindi Constituency. This amounted to conflict of interest,” said the Dpp.
Jumwa is said to have hidden to receipt of the funds by putting the amount towards the purchase of an apartment on Argwings Kodhek Road in Nairobi.
