Kenyan Detectives who have been tracking a Ugandan lady were forced to use one messaging application commonly called WhatsApp to arrest her. The Ugandan lady was arrested in Watamu after the police search led to one hotel in which she was staying.
According to Malindi Sub-county Police Commander, the police formed a WhatsApp group and drafted a message with all the details of the middle-aged woman. The message also contained details of her treacherous ways she uses to con unsuspecting Kenyans.
A police report revealed that the lady has been using fake US dollars to carry out her transactions in various hotels in Kenya. Police say that she has been touring the Kenyan Coast using the fake currency whilst having fun in various hotels located there.
Police had to circulate the message among security agents and cashiers in the hotels she frequented in. It is estimated that she had already spent $700 fake money which is about Sh70000 before she was dramatically arrested in Watamu.
$950 fake currency was recovered from her after the arrest. She is in police custody helping them with investigations as she awaits to be arraigned in court.
