Former KTN and K24 news anchor, Ann Ngugi has been mentioned in a fraud case. Her husband, Hypolite Nyong’bia and Kamimbaya Soumali are chaged with defrauding a Nigerian businessman and two Koreans off Sh.6.4 million.
Mr Soumali allegedly received the cash in Nairobi and Kinshasa last year pretending he could sell them 50 kilos of raw gold.
According to Nairobi News, prosecutor Leonard Kurgat said Mr Soumali conspired with others to obtain the cash from Fabian Chibiebule Ohare and his Korean business partners. Kurgat added that he made his victims travel between Tanzania, Kenya and the DRC in vain.
Mrs Ngugi’s name came up when the prosecutor told the court that the victims called her to confirm if her husband was in deed a genuine gold dealer, to which she responded in the affirmative.This could see her appear in court or even charged with conspiring to commit fraud.
The hearing of the case is set for May 30.
