Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa is admitted to the Mombasa Hospital.

According to a reliable source, the vocal MP was admitted to the hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) after she developed breathing complications, soon after her brother Jumaa Karisa's body arrived at Moi International Airport on Wednesday.

Close relatives and politicians, who visited her yesterday, told The Standard that Ms Jumwa had since been transferred to the general ward after her condition improved.

Aisha did not attend the burial of her brother last Thursday at their home in Takaungu village in Kilifi North Constituency. She also did not attend Saturday's meeting of Coast MPs at a Kilifi hotel . Several politicians visited her at the hospital after the meeting.
