The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has arrested Peter Wangai Muriithi, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Goldenscape Group Limited.
In a statement released on their social media platforms on Thursday, March 26, the sleuths announced that Wangai had been arrested due to accusations of defrauding people of billions through his company Goldenscape Group Limited.
“Wangai through his company lured investors to invest in Greenhouses that were to be set up in Ol Kalou, Nyahururu and other places which turned out to be a fraudulent investment deal,” the statement reads in part.
The DCI further announced that he will be charged with more than five charges which have been leveled against him by his victims who have reportedly written statements at the DCI headquarters.
“He will be charged with the offense of obtaining money by false pretenses, conspiracy to defraud, false representation, issuing bad cheques among other charges,” the statement concludes.
