MP Aisha Jumwa has said that the Muthaiga Police Station cell where she was detained was in poor condition and unhealthy for human use.
Describing it as inhuman even for the criminals, she vowed that she will go back to Muthaiga to fund the renovation of the floor of the cell in which she had stayed for three days.
According to her:
“Despite we had water to clean ourselves, no human being should be subjected to such treatment. The situation was inhumane and is not even fit for criminals. We were not allowed to change our clothes. Imagine a woman wearing the same clothes for four days. We were barred from meeting our visitors including friends and family.
Most of our relatives came but they were not allowed to see us. Only my son and CORD co-principals were allowed to see us once. I will go back to Muthaiga and pay for the refurbishment of the floor of the cell where I spent three days, so that the next ‘guests’ can stay in a dignified place.”
Jumwa was held at Muthaiga police station for slamming Jubilee’s decision to include Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria in the committee to hold talks on IEBC issue.
She was among those arraigned in court by the government for making inciting remarks alongside the leaders from CORD and Jubilee coalitions who were also accused of hate speech and incitement.
The Kilifi Woman rep was released on bail on Friday, June 17. But she didn’t leave the cell without cutting a green leaf from it. She was not alone as the likes of Ngunjiri collapsed at the court where he appeared with seven other MPs to plead to hate charges.
All the MPs pleaded not guilty to the hate speech charges. MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) and Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete) pleaded not guilty to the hate charges and were released on Sh5 million bond each on Friday.
The other six politicians who were also arraigned in court were released on Sh1 million bond each, with the alternative of Sh300,000 cash bail each.
