Mungatana reveals the trick West Africans used to con him millions

He spoke after a newspaper story that he lost Sh76 million

Danson Mungana: How I lost my millions to West African con men

Mungatana spoke to the press after a local newspaper reported that he had been conned Sh76 million by a group of West Africans who lied to him that they would be able to multiply his money by visiting a witchdoctor.

The former Garsen MP, however, said the newspaper misreported facts as he had been conned eight years ago by a group of West Africans who convinced him to invest in a high-return oil business.

“We received profit in the first and second rounds, but the third time the proprietors of the scheme disappeared with our money,” Mungatana said.

He added that he made a police report after he saw one of the people who conned him being arraigned by the police after he was caught running a different con scheme.

“The suspects were arrested on September 28 and police invited the public to make any complaints regarding the accused. I recognised Abdalla as one of those who defrauded me in a totally different scheme that had nothing to do with witchcraft and multiplication of dollars,” he stated.

The former KAA Chairman threatened to sue the newspaper for depicting him as a fool who was easily tricked with the promise of becoming an overnight billionaire.

“Yes, I excelled both at Alliance High School and the University of Nairobi. I’m now pursuing my PhD. But that incident can happen to anyone. Crime does not respect your degree,” Mungatana said.
