Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has been released on KSh 500,000 cash bail after spending a night in police custody.
Further the court has directed that the MP submit herself to assist DCI with investigation into the chaos in Ganda Ward on Tuesday, October 15 evening that saw one person dead.
Also Senior Principal Magistrate Vincent Adet directed that police are free to press charge against Jumwa if they have evidence.
Jumwa and her bodyguard Geoffrey Okuto Otieno were arrested in the wee hours of Wednesday morning following chaos that saw a man shot dead after Jumwa supporters clashed with those of ODM at Gandani Ward in Malindi.
The man shot dead was a relative of Ganda Ward by election candidate Reuben Katana.
Chaos broke out after Jumwa stormed a meeting of ODM agents at a house belonging Katana.
The meeting was reportedly meant to organise how ODM agents would handle the by-election on Thursday, October 17.
A commotion ensued after Jumwa queried why such a meeting would be held at night after the campaign period has lapsed.
