Kibwezi West MP Patrick Musimba and his wife Angela Mwende have been arrested for stealing Sh1.1 billion from Chase Bank between January 2015 and March 2016.
The two denied the charges before Milimani Senior Resident Magistrate Hellen Onkwani and were remanded at the Kileleshwa Police Station until September 20 pending a bail hearing.
The two did not appear in court on Thursday to take a plea alongside the former lender’s chairman Mohamed Khan.
Others facing similar charges are Dancun Kabui, James Mwenja, Makrios Agumbi, Luciane Sunter and Ronald Vlasman.
On Saturday former Kibwezi West MP Kalembe Ndile accused Musimba of using part of the monies to rig him out of the 2013 parliamentary vote with the help of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.
