Last week Sabina Chege, the Murang’a Woman Representative shocked Kenyans when she gave an emotional narration on the floor of the House of how her personal details were being used to extort money from members of parliament through M-Pesa.
The police have now revealed the identity of the man behind the M-Pesa con scheme as 25-year-old Wazir Benson Masubo Chacha, a former Ministry of Devolution employee. Chacha is accused of using fake MPesa accounts to demand money from Members of Assembly and other VIPs.
He is believed to be a friend to a former Member of Parliament (MP) where he got most of the MPs’ contacts.
The Nairobian, did a story on February 9, 2018, about Chacha who openly revealed a love relationship with former Bomet County Woman Representative, Dr Cecilia Ng’etich. He claims he fell in love with 54-year old ex-MP Ng’etich only to be left bruised, cold and lonely on Valentine’s Day.
“She dumped me on Valentine’s Day. I was to accompany her to South Africa on that day, only for her to tell me that the relationship was over,” he says.
Police are now looking for Mr Chacha, for questioning over registration of a fake MPesa account using the details of Sabina Chege.
