FRAUDSTERS ON THE PROWL
Members of public are hereby warned that a team of racketeers that had left the CBD following the arrest of their leader one John Ng’ethe Mwaura (photo attached) who was charged with assaulting a Police Officer and maliciously damaging his property is back.
Mwaura who also identifies himself as an overseer of the Christ Love International Ministry is a con who together with his accomplices robs unsuspecting members of the public in the pretex of selling them coupons with redeemable prizes.
The racketeers were today sighted in town along Moi Avenue preying on unsuspecting Kenyans. Before Mwaura’s arrest earlier this year, the team was using a motor vehicle reg no KBY 546M but information in our pocession indicates that they are using a different one this time round a Station Wagon reg. no KBL 247X where victims were lured to by con agents to buy the coupons and redeem prizes that are non existent. We caution all to remain vigilant and inform us incase they are sighted anywhere.
Following a tip off from a member of the public,our officers managed to arrest Mwaura’s accomplice one Peter Gitau Kibe with whom they run the racket together. He will be arraigned in court tomorrow.
