Jumwa and his bodyguard Geoffrey Otieno have been charged with the alleged killing of an ODM supporter Jola Ngumbao during the Ganda Ward by-elections in 2019. 

One of the five witnesses Alfred Kahindi told Judge Anne Onginjo that on the fateful day, Jumwa Reuben Katana’s home where a meeting was taking place and accused police officers of not executing her orders to bar the meeting.
