He was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to appear in court soon.

Machacha is alleged to have failed to account for $17 000 from the Constituency Development Fund allocated to him.

A source close to the proceedings revealed that more legislators are likely to be nabbed as the Anti-Corruption Commission is said to be planning to widen its net.

Machacha is the 4th legislator to be arrested within a month after the arrest of three others on similar allegations.
