July 25, 2022

Police officers in Embakasi have launched a hunt for a man and a woman who allegedly stole Sh1.1 million from a reveler.

The complainant, Robert Mugi Wahome, was having fun at Shamilla Villa Club in Embakasi when a woman joined him.

After enjoying drinks with the lady, they left the club for his house to spend the rest of the night together. However, when Wahome woke up the following day, he found the woman had already left.

His two mobile phones; a Huawei and Hisense both registered to the Safaricom network, were missing. The woman also allegedly made away with a wristwatch, a national Identification card, and two ATM cards for Equity and Cooperative banks.

Wahome rushed to the Equity bank branch within Taj Mall where he found out that Sh1.1 million had been irregularly transferred from his account to the three accounts.

The victim reported the matter at Embakasi police station a day after he was robbed under OB number 20/22/04/2022.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) took over the matter leading to the arrest of Jesse Mwangi Muthee and Martin Maina Waigwa.

Mwangi allegedly received Sh399,000 while Waigwa received Sh300,000 from the victim’s bank account.

A third suspect, identified as Anthony Waithaka Wahome, allegedly received Sh100,000 from the account as well.

“They were arrested on July 15, for the suspicion of having committed an offence of stealing contrary to section 268 as read section 275 of the penal code,” a detective said in a miscellaneous application filed at the Makadara law courts.

“The lady who was with the complainant has not been arrested thus we need time to arrest her together with Mr Anthony Waithaka Macharia who also received Sh100,000.”
