Makadara lawmaker Gidion Mbuvi has been remanded in custody until Friday after he was denied bail by a Nairobi court. Kibera chief magistrate Cecilia Githua remanded Mr Mbuvi at Kileleshwa police station following an application by the State. The accused denied two fresh cases of obtaining a total of Sh3.3 million by pretences. He faced charges of obtaining money by pretences and conspiracy to defraud in two different files. In one of the files he was charged with obtaining Sh500,000 from Patience Chepchuba Kogo pretending he would sell to her an unregistered Toyota Shark. He allegedly committed the offence in Mombasa town on November 24, 2009. In another case, Mr Mbuvi denied that he conspired to defraud Mr Chirag Sanghrajka of Sh2.8 million pretending that a land parcel in Kwale was genuine and valid for sale. The court heard that he committed the offence at Tile Carpet Centre along Mombasa Road, Nairobi on August 16, 2006. He was also charged with obtaining Sh2.8 million from M/s Tile and Carpet Ltd on August 11, 2006. His lawyers applied for their client to be released on bail saying that the offences are bailable. But prosecuting, Chief Inspector Joseph Musyoka objected to the MP being released on bail. “The accused had another case before Kibera court whereby he had been arrested by the police and released on bond on April 30, 2008. He was to appear for plea hearing on May 5, 2008. He never appeared and warrant of arrest against him was issued on the same day,” Insp Musyoka said.
