When it rains it pours.

Malindi Mp Aisha Jumwa will be spending another night in police custody awaiting the judge’s decision tomorrow on whether the police can continue holding her in custody.

The MP was arrested yesterday after a man was shot dead in a scuffle created by her bodyguards and supporters after storming an ODM meeting gearing for the upcoming by-elections.

The prosecution has requested to continue holding her for another 7 days as investigations continue into the circumstances of the shooting.

Upon the conclusion of investigations, the prosecution will decide on whether to charge her in court and what charges she will answer to. This is when she would apply for bail.

In other words, if the police have their way, it will be quite sometime before Jumwa is roaring in campaigns again.
