Detectives have flagged Ksh320 million in suspicious transactions through various bank accounts operated by Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.

Investigators analysing  accounts flagged what they termed as alleged suspicious transactions.

“The nature of the identified account transactions and properties indicate a high possibility of fraud and money laundering,” reads a report by the investigators

Mwilu was facing 13 counts of abuse of office, tax evasion and fraudulent recovery of loan securities before her prosecution was temporarily halted last week.

Also flagged are tranches of six payments totaling Sh86 million to Lucy Muthoni Magelo, wife to ex-Nairobi Speaker Alex Ole Magelo.

This was allegedly paid for purchase of property in Lavington.
