Extortion suspect brags about his ‘sex affairs’ with 13 female MPs

The smiles he exhibited were tinged with anxiety which he tried to hide, as he gazed at the Muthaiga Police Station, where he would spend two nights waiting to be presented to court.

It was probably going to be the first time he was being ushered into the cells in the glare of the cameras from almost all media stations in the country. After all, he was now famous.

Beneath Wazir Benson Chacha’s articulate demeanor lies controversies. He is the man who allegedly extorted money from over five Members of Parliament (MPs) disguised as one of them.

The 25-year-old, who has been using the name Jamal Chacha Mwita since he was declared wanted, was arrested on Friday at the prestigious PKM Inn in Tarime, located 20 kilometres from the Kenyan border, a day before he could travel to Zanzibar.

Mr Chacha brags having had intimate relationships with 13 female MPs and other women. The Nation has not authoritatively confirmed the authenticity of these claims.

Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti told the National Assembly Security Committee that his office had discovered that the suspect was in a special relationship with some MPs.

He, however, did not reveal their names.

He said investigations revealed that the suspect’s ring of extortionists was wide and his office intended to arrest more people.

The suspect came to the limelight after he shared on the net pictures of him and a former MP alleging that they had been having an affair.

Police also said that their investigations revealed that Mr Chacha had sent several emails to bloggers, attaching emailed WhatsApp conversations with a number of female MPs.

The emails also contain several pictures and videos.

“The conversations indicate that he had been communicating with several of them, and he even travelled with some of them to South Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania and Dubai,” an officer said.

They also suspect he is the administrator of a page in social platform Telegram, where nude pictures are shared.
