Pastor's lorry 'stolen' by MP who defected from NASA to Jubilee found

A lorry belonging to Helicopter Church Ministries preacher Thomas Wahome has been found close to two years after it was apparently stolen by an MP.

The vehicle was found in a garage on Monday, March 27, in Nairobi West, dismantled beyond recognition.

Wahome who arrived at the scene could not identify the lorry immediately and had to use documents in his possession to identify it.

The disappearance of the lorry caused a stir in September 2015 when Wahome reported that Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambo whom he had leased the lorry to had refused to return it.

As reported by TUKO. co.ke, the preacher claimed he leased the lorry to transport cement from Donholm to a construction site in Karen.

Wahome reported the matter to the Kilimani Police Station and was given two police officers who accompanied him to Mutambo's office along Ngong Road.

On arrival, the MP turned violent, claiming that he had bought the lorry from the pastor and had not received the documents.

He assaulted Wahome and the police officers and threatened to shoot them by drawing his gun.

Mutambo was later arraigned in court where he denied the charges and was released on a KSh 20,000 cash bail.

According to Wahome, the MP has taken the vehicle to an unknown garage for repainting.

Mutambo was elected on a Wiper Party ticket but has since defected to the Jubilee Party.

Early 2016, he was also arraigned in court for squeezing the private parts of an aide to Kitui Governor Julius Malombe.
