High court judge Justice Said Juma Chitembwe has narrated how police officers brought a woman to the chambers of a judge's offices with over Ksh 5.5 million.

According to him, the police officers used the unidentified lady to bring the money to the offices of his ally and counterpart Justice Aggrey Muchelule.

She was allegedly taken to the toilet and the money in question was allegedly recovered from her and the same was linked to Justice Muchelule together with Chitembwe.

“Outside the door of the 1st interested party’s office, I met three persons who introduced themselves as police officers and ordered me back into the chamber of the 1st interested party for an operation as they called it, “read the affidavit in part.

The Judge has as well agreed that he was arrested with sone US Dollars which he has said was aimed at paying the school feeds of his son who schools in Australia.
