Details are however scanty on the source of the killer shot that took away an innocent life.
Mr. Gumboa was taken to Malindi District Hospital.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) cleared four aspirants for the upcoming by-election in Ganda Ward.
They are Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party’s, Reuben Mwamure Katana and David Mitsanze of Kadu Asili party, Abdulrahman Omar Mohamed, who is defending his seat as an independent candidate and Joseph Ngumbao Kiponda of the Jubilee Party.
Aisha Jumwa is behind Abdulrahman Omar Mohamed, the independent candidate and has vowed to teach ODM a lesson for trying to deal with her for dining with DP Ruto.
ODM have however called on the residents of Ganda to teach Jumwa a Political lesson.
Kiponda’s supporters had earlier urged Jubilee Party’s National officials led by the Party Leader, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy Party Leader, Deputy President, William Ruto to throw their weight behind the party candidate and ignore a candidate being fronted by Malindi MP, Aisha Jumwa.
