Fraud and Deals –Detectives, acting on a tip off have arrested two suspects in connection to fraudulently obtaining money from members of the public.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations DCI stated that the duo was obtaining money from unsuspecting job seekers on the pretext that they would assist them in securing job opportunities in various government departments.
David Thuo Njehia and Kyalo Kilonzo, were arrested along Ngong Road, after defrauding unsuspecting members of the public more than sh 880,000.
Posing as employees of the Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company NWSC, the duo has been taking advantage of desperate Kenyans seeking employment by promising to offer them the jobs.
Detectives pounced on the two moments before they received an additional sh100,000 from a gullible jobseeker who had been promised a plum permanent and pensionable position at the Nairobi Water and Sewerage company.
Upon interrogation, it was established that the miscreants are habitual fraudsters wanted by detectives based at Dandora after they previously jumped bail for a similar offence.
Many unemployed Kenyans have lost money in million after falling prey to rogue employment agents and agencies with the latest case having happened in Uasin Gisu County in infamous scam dubbed Finland Scholarship.
Parents and children lost thousands of monies each after being promised education abroad in a scheme that former are governor Jackson Mandago was also mentioned.
Mandago would later be pressured to issue a statement on the matter which he later promised to settle with the affected families.
The matter attracted the attention of President William Ruto who toured the Region and assured those who had lost their hard-earned money that his government will follow up.
