Friday November 8, 2019 - Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) questioned Malindi MP, Aisha Jumwa, on Thursdayover alleged embezzlement of Sh.57, 711,690 of public funds.
Four companies linked to Jumwa are said to have received
a total of Sh. 312,624,464.
According to DCI, Jumwa and her children siphoned the money through their company, Kaseru Construction Ltd.
“From the foregoing, it is clear that there was collusion to embezzle public funds and there was major conflict of interest on the part of Aisha Jumwa Karisa,” the document from the Economic and Commercial Crimes Unit reads.
Out of this amount, the MP allegedly received a total of Sh. 57,711,690 into her bank account.
The funds are said to have been for payment of services rendered to the County through a number of tenders.
One of the listed transactions is Sh. 9,495, 512.05 allegedly sent to Kaseru Construction Ltd on May 11th two years ago.
The DCI report further indicates that after the payment was made, MP Aisha Jumwa coincidentally received Sh 3 million.
At the same time, her Likoni counterpart, Mishi Juma Hamisi, apparently also received Sh.3, 000,000.
However, Jumwa through her lawyers, Cliff Ombeta and Danstan Omari, said she is not the chairman of CDF in Malindi and she had no authority to pay the money to aforementioned companies.
