Benson Masubo Chacha accused of impersonating Murang’a Women representative Sabina Chege and extorting money from legislators was on Tuesday denied bail until Thursday.
The suspect is facing six counts which include conspiracy to defraud.
He was charged with procuring registration of a Safaricom Mobile number in the name of Sabina Chege and using the fake Mpesa account to solicit money.
The court heard that police are still investigating the alleged cases and that releasing him will jeopardise investigations.
He was taken to Muthaiga Police Station.
