Seven suspects who have been impersonating a senior government officer and socialites to obtain money by false pretences have been arrested after an intense operation.
The seven, Joseph Waswa, Duncan Muchai, Isaac Wanyonyi, William Simiyu, David Luganya, Gilbert Kirunja and Antony Wafula were arrested on Saturday following an operation by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
In a statement posted on its twitter handle, the detectives recovered four vehicles including a Toyota Land Cruiser V8, Toyota Mark X and Toyota Axio that the suspects were allegedly using to run their activities.
According to police, the suspected fraudsters were mostly targeting the Indian community.
They are set to be arraigned in court on Monday to face charges of obtaining money by false pretence among other counts.
