ODM leader Raila Odinga has slammed Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa for perverting the course of justice.
Speaking on Saturday during the burial of Ngumbao Jola in Ganda, Malindi Sub County, Raila faulted the judiciary for releasing Jumwa before the case was concluded.
Malindi MP and her aide Geoffrey Okuto on October 17 were freed on Sh500, 000 bail over the alleged violence that broke out at Ganda ward that claimed the life of Gumbao Jola through shooting.
Jola was the uncle to Ganda ward MCA elect Reuben Katana.
“Those who killed Jola were taken to court. They were set free while investigations are ongoing. This shows the judiciary has some flaws and needs to be investigated,” said Raila
Raila said murder suspects should not be released on bail, they should remain in custody as investigations are carried out.
“When they are released they start chest thumping on how they managed to armtwist the courts. Murder suspects shouldn’t be released until their cases are concluded,” he added
Raila pledged to pursue justice for Jola.
Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, Kilifi governor Amason Kingi and Kilifi North MP Owen Baya also attended the burial
