After two individuals were detained with smashed padlocks disguised as gold, the get-rich-quick schemes of a portion of Kenyans appear to have gone a level higher.
The tricked victim put the money into various Mpesa accounts provided by the perpetrators.
Hundreds of SIM cards from local mobile telecommunications networks, as well as stolen Kenyan identification cards, were found at the suspects' hideout in Uthiru, Kiambu county, in what detectives consider to be a well-coordinated gang.
The suspects, according to detectives, utilize personal information from identification documents to register SIM cards that are used to steal money from Kenyans through mobile money transfers.
