EXPOSED: These are the text messages Wazir Chacha sent to MPs extorting them money

By Fay Ngina | April 5th 2018

Wazir Benson Chacha has been in the news for weeks now after police arrested him in Tarime, Tanzania as a key suspect in a scam targeting Members of Parliament (MPs) and other senior government officials.

Chacha had been hiding in Tanzania before his arrest waiting for his documents before he could move to Zanzibar where he had rented a house for a year.

The former employee in the Ministry of Devolution is alleged to have conned the MPs by sending them text messages using the name of Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege.

Sabina Chege, who has since denied having any contact with the con suspect, dared Chacha to release the videos proving otherwise.

“I’m waiting. Because, let me tell you, I will not be intimidated. When I spoke about it in Parliament and I asked the Speaker that I needed to make a personal statement, one, it is because I can tell you I have never had any personal contact with Chacha,” said Sabina during an interview with Hot 96 on Wednesday 4 April.

“With the kind of relationship we are talking about, if Chacha had videos, he would have released them,” she continued.
