Man hunt launched by DCI for a man behind a conning syndicate.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations DCI has on Wednesday August 12 announced that they are hunting for one John Ng’ethe Mwaura, who is accused of running a con syndicate and exploiting unsuspecting Kenyans of thousands of shillings.

The DCI states that unsuspecting members of the public have lost thousands of shillings at the hands of fraudsters.

“We would like to speak to this man in connection with the incidents. Do you know him? “ Part of the tweet from the DCI posed.

The DCI also advised the public with information about the suspect or those who set eyes on him to call the National Police Service hotlines 999, 911 or 112.

A day ago DCI detectives based at Kilimani arrested Hon Danson Mungatana and Mr Collins Paul Waweru for the offence of obtaining money by false pretenses, forgery and making of a false document.

The two with others who are still at large were arrested after their victim presented to security agency tender documents purported to have originated from them but were found to be fake after scrutiny.

Before presenting the fake tender documents, the victim had allegedly paid Ksh 1,000,000 in order to be assisted to win a Ksh 70M cereals and building tenders and was to pay another Ksh 1,000,000 before detectives pounced on the two at a hotel in the CBD.

Further Investigations are on course as search for the others continue.
