Incidents where Kenyans have lost their money to fraudsters have been on the rise with the government through the Directorate of Criminal Investigations doing its best to bring the culprits to book.

This morning, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Nairobi Courts, a man by the name of Nicholas Munguti Kavita is accused of obtaining 1,437,500 Kenya shillings from Yoanine Nyameino.
He also obtained 766, 000 Kenya shillings from Ms. Linet Nyachieo on diverse dates this year by falsely pretending that he could sell her a parcel of land at the Embakasi Ranching Company that is based in Ruai in Nairobi, knowing that it was false.
The two women visited the land only to be met by other persons who claimed to be the real owners of the land and then discovered they had been scammed.
They immediately reported the matter at the Ruai Police Station and the suspect was apprehended and charged.
He was released on a 500,000 Kenya shillings as per the reports that we have with us this morning.
