Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has been arrested over the misappropriation of Ksh19 million county development fund (CDF).
Jumwa was arrested after surrendering at the Port Police Station and is set to be arraigned on Monday, August 31.
A video resurfaced saying that she was heading to Port Station.
“I am now off to Port Police Station as directed by the courts. I have heard so many rumours that I have been arrested. I have not been arrested, I am going there as a Kenyan who respects the constitution and everything is okay. I am now off…see you guys later,” the MP said as she boarded her vehicle.
Jumwa was a no-show in a Mombasa Court on Friday as police arraigned her six co-accused over alleged misappropriation of funds in the CDF kitty.
The MP’s lawyer, Danstan Omari, told the court that his client, who is accused of misappropriating Ksh19 million CDF funds, could not appear in court as she is sick.
