  • Detectives drawn from the DCI unit have nabbed fake Ksh60 million disguised as marketing flyers through a high-level operation conducted on Thursday, September 9.

    The fake currency was part of a consignment that was destined for Muscat, the capital city of Oman from a money-laundering syndicate.

    The seized currency was in 460 US dollar notes and in denominations of 100, which were packaged in 12 bundles that were labelled as marketing flyers for non-existence multi-national, Global Food Supplies company.

    The DCI got involved following a tip-off from a security manager at the company that was to do the shipment.

    DCI detectives moved with speed and nabbed the consignment at a facility located at Lusaka Road in the Industrial Area, Nairobi.

    Further investigations established the money-laundering syndicate was run by an individual who operates from Ngong Area in Kajiado County.

    Moreover, DCI has sought Interpol’s intervention to facilitate the arrest of an Oman-based consignee.

    This comes as the manhunt for more suspects roped in the money-laundering scheme intensifies.

    The arrest has taken place days after sleuths from DCI opened investigations into an incident in which ‘Wash Wash’ money laundering miscreants were seen in a viral video beating up a colleague for allegedly “flaunting wealth on social media”.

    In a statement, the DCI asked Kenyans to provide information that will lead to the apprehension of the group after videos of the brawl went viral.

    One of the videos that went viral last week, showed an unidentified man flaunting bundles of money and expensive liquor while he was surrounded by women.
