Jayendra Malde vehemently denied hving ever asked for a bribe.
“I have never asked for a bribe from anyone, neither plans of receiving any bribe on behalf of the County Legal affairs committee, my worries why have I not been arraigned in court?”
Malde at a press conference in the County Assembly called on Sumra to stop political witch-hunt questioning why he was within the scene of the arrest.
“I have not been involved in such corrupt practices. Let Hon Sumra come clear on this. He is the person who organized everything and stage-managed it. I can swear I did not receive the cash.” Said Malde.
But Sumra told the Writer that the MCA is out on a bond of ksh 100,000 he secured from the police.

Sumra refuted claims saying he has on many occasions warned the MCA from extorting Asian businessmen. A claim Malde denied.
