Businessman seeks DCI help after losing Sh181 Million to fraudsters operating from DP Ruto’s office
They met and signed deal at DP Ruto’s office
Through his Lawyers Veronica & Associates Advocates, Musyoka expressed his frustration with the manner in which the police officers have handled his complaint involving the fraudsters who appear to be well connected and with access to the DP’s office where they met.
It all began in March last year when representatives of Makindu (Musyoka’s company) were led to the office of the DP, through VIP Lift to the third floor, office number B3-005.
Here, they met one Miss Joy Wangari Kamau (alias Miss. Muhoro) posing as the head of procurement at the office of the Deputy President and signed a Non- Disclosure Agreement which had the official logo of the office of the DP.
Tender to supply 2800 pieces of laptop to the office of the Deputy President.
With other accomplices, Miss Muhoro would convince the businessman that he had won a tender to supply 2800 pieces of laptop to the office of the Deputy President.
According to court documents, Makindu Motors also signed a supplier agreement with the office of the DP where they were contracted to supply laptops. The agreement also had an official logo of the DP’s office which they believed to be genuine.
Subsequent meetings would see Musyoka deliver 2800 laptops to the fraudsters and each time documents bearing the logo of logo of the DP’s office which they believed to be genuine were signed.
At one point, he received correspondence from an email address he believed was from the DP’s office- firstname.lastname@example.org,
To finance the deal, he acquired a loan from Sidian Bank.
He got alarmed after he received information that the pieces of laptops he had supplied were being sold in Computers and Accessories outlets in Nairobi Central Business District.
He confirmed his fears by buying ten pieces of laptops from an outlet using a proxy.

An additional 10 laptops were recovered from a Motor Vehicle make Mercedes Benz Registration Number KCL 505J parked at the premises.
According to Musyoka, Chesang was the main architect of the plan is still a free man despite media reports indicating that he had been arrested.
“On August 30, 2018 it was reported in the media that the key suspect and mastermind of the fraud, Allan Chesang was finally arrested but sadly and surprisingly, the suspect has never been taken to court.”
“Our client is frustrated and unsatisfied with the pace at which the investigations are being carried out. Mainly on the Fact that the main Culprit is still a free man not yet arrested or charged,” adds the letter.
