Jumwa, bodyguard to undergo mental assessment test

Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa and her bodyguard, Geoffrey Otieno, are expected to undergo a mental assessment test today.

Jumwa and Otieno were to answer to murder charges but did not as they had not undergone a mental evaluation.

Judge Njoki Mwangi directed the MP and her aide to be remanded at Port police station and be taken to Coast General Hospital today for the test. They are expected back in court tomorrow.

Jumwa is accused of fatally injuring Ngumbao Jola, who was shot dead during Ganda Ward in Malindi Constituency by-election in 2019.
