MP tells court impostor tried to con him of Sh200,000

By Joackim Bwana | January 30th 2020

Magarini MP Michael Thoya yesterday told a Mombasa court that a man charged with impersonation tried to con him out of Sh200,000.

Mr Thoya (pictured) who testified before Chief Magistrate Ednah Nyaloti said Wesley Kipkemboi lied to him and to his brother Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi that he was attached to the anti-graft agency.

He explained that Kipkemboi had claimed he was investigating him and his brother. Kipkemboi is charged with two counts of impersonation and swindling Thoya and the governor out of money.

He pretended he could help the two in a case where Thoya is charged with graft. He was released on a Sh500,000 bond. The hearing continues today.
