Kibwezi West MP Patrick Musimba and his wife Angela Mwende have been arrested for allegedly stealing Sh1.1 billion from Chase Bank between January 2015 and March 2016.
The two did not appear in court on Thursday to take a plea alongside the former lender’s chairman Mohamed Khan.
On Saturday former Kibwezi West MP Kalembe Ndile accused Musimba of using part of the money he stole to rig him out of the 2013 parliamentary vote with the help of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.
According to the former MP, the money changed hands at the Judiciary which saw him sent back to the ballot.
He further claimed that Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was part of a cartel at the Judiciary which robbed him of his victory.
“About 30 million shillings was spent to rig me out through the judiciary under Mwilu’s behest,” he told reporters.
The embattled DCJ paid Sh15 million to Musimba in 2013, which she told the police was a refund for failed purchase but there was apparently no evidence of any payment by the latter to Mwilu.
It is around this time that Musimba had his election nullified by Justice Majanja.
