DCI & CBK hunt for fake Uhuru after second conning incident

Another con game

Businessman  John Henry Waswa

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is looking for businessman Henry Waswa 

This comes after the Central Bank of Kenya arrested three suspects who allegedly conned two foreigners of Ksh15 million claiming they could sell them coffee and other artefacts.

Police said that the suspects, who are close associates of Waswa, together with a senior politician, obtained money from Kazakhstan nationals Damir Ryskulov and his brother.

Sleuths from the DCI’s Financial Investigations Unit (FIU) arrested Berlin Owino Ajeck, Stephen Roberts Andere and Evelyne Adhiambo Osore. 

Flagged money

The investigating officer Mike Muia requested the court to allow them to detain the suspects for 14 days to enable them to complete investigations after they were presented in court.

The three, and others who are yet to be arrested, are to be charged with obtaining money by false pretense and money laundering.

Ryskulov is said to have made payments which triggered investigations after they were flagged by detectives attached to CBK.

Waswa had assigned the first accused, Ajeck to Ryskulov as a personal assistant, driver and bodyguard. 

Detectives raid

On Thursday night, detectives raided the apartment and took away Ryskulov to an undisclosed hotel in the city. 

Waswa has, however, denied receiving any payment from Ryskulov, insisting that he was dealing with another Kazakhstani national who had bought some scrap metal from him.

He was once accused of impersonating President Uhuru Kenyatta and fraudulently obtaining Ksh10 million from Sameer Africa chairman Naushad Merali.
