According to James, the suspect's wife identified as Rhoda Ongar, took the suspect's (Husband) phone to call her mother when she received a pop up notification bearing the name 'M-PESA' from the phone.

Rhoda is said to have asked her husband also called Clause Ongar, who the sender of the message whom he saved as M-PESA was.

In his defence, Clause said that M-PESA is his Sukuma Wiki customer and was texting him to ask for a long overdue payment from him.
