Before her appointment, Jumwa was facing a murder charges and a Sh19 million graft case.
In 2020, Mombasa Regional Head Alloys Kemo approved the murder and assault charges against the MP and her bodyguard Geoffrey Okuto Otieno over the fatal shooting of Ngumbao Jola and injury of several people during the October 15 Ganda by-election.
Jola was shot in the shoulder and killed during the chaos and several other people, including police officers, were injured.
In 2019, the police had accused the MP of assault, incitement and murder of Jola, an uncle to Reuben Katana, an ODM candidate who was vying for the Ganda seat.
Aisha Jumwa was arrested on October 15 after the shooting and arraigned in court on October 16, 2019, having spent a day in police custody.
She was arraigned in Mombasa Law Courts before Resident Magistrate Vincent Adet and was freed on a bond of Sh1 million with a surety of a similar amount or an alternative cash bail of Sh500,000 pending the investigations.
The deceased was shot dead in chaos that ensued after Jumwa stormed a meeting of ODM agents at a house belonging to Reuben Katana.
