Police Launch Crackdown on Con Preachers in Nairobi, Here Are The Spots Where They Operate

Police in Nairobi have called on residents who may have fallen prey to con preachers under the guise that they will double money to report such incidents immediately.

Central Sub-County Police commander David Baariu said that they have formed a special squad that will hunt and track down men and women who pose as preachers only to defraud gullible victims.

Baariu said "Establishing whether one is a genuine preacher or not is a difficult task. Anyone who has lost their money through such people to come forward,"

Some of the spots from where the con preachers operate are National archives, Gill House, Bomb Blast Memorial and along River Road.

According to Baariu, it is becoming impossible to prosecute such cases.

A few years back, an elderly woman alleged to be part of a cartel of con preachers was dramatically unmasked by a victim at Kencom bus stop.
