Posted by Administrator on February 24, 2011

Makadara MP Gideon Mbuvi appears before Mombasa chief magistrate Rosemelle Mutoka to answer charges of defrauding Najma Ali Ahmed of Sh1,050,000. He denied the charge and was released on bond of Sh 900,000 with surety of a similar amount February 24, 2011. LABAN WALLOGA

Makadara MP Gideon Mbuvi has been charged with obtaining over one million shillings through false pretences by a Mombasa court. 

The MP, who appeared before Mombasa chief magistrate Rosemelle Mutoka, denied the charge and was released on a Sh900, 000 bond with surety of a similar amount. 

According to the charge sheet, the MP’s name read: Gideon Kioko Mbuvi alias Musa. 

The MP was in court attending to another matter in which summons were issued against him in connection with a Sh5 million fraud case. 

Immediately the magistrate was through with the Sh5m case and while the MP had started to walk away, the court clerk called out his name and the charge was read out to him.

Chief inspector Peter Githogo said the prosecution intends to consolidate the matter with another already in court. 

The MP, allegedly with others not before court and with intent to defraud, obtained Sh1, 050,000 from Najma Ali Ahmed saying he was in a position to sell her a plot.

He is alleged to have committed the offence on November 13, 2009 at Martin Tindi and company advocates offices in Mombasa town.

Lawyer Gakuhi Gacaku representing the MP had earlier sought to have his client released on bond with an alternative of cash bail.

“The accused is not likely to abscond, he is an MP and would abide by terms,” said Mr Gakuhi who also told the court that the accused had presented himself before court.
