Detectives attached to the Serious Crime Unit (SCU) on Thursday night, 26th November 2020 arrested the directors of Airlink Freight Limited in connection to a fake gold racket worth a substantial amount of money.
The two businessmen, Jackson Maina and Awuyene Mbombo were nabbed after a national from Burkina Faso filed a complaint at the DCI claiming he had been swindled by the two between October 27 and November 16. The two claimed they could sell him gold.
The officers burst into house No. 91 in Nairobi’s Convent Drive, Lavington and seized four metal boxes containing fake gold nuggets, assorted stamps and gold smelting equipment.
The two will be charged in court on Monday.
