Detectives in Nairobi have arrested six suspects in connection with the production of fake Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) stamps.
The suspects, Peter Mburu, James Kigera, Frankline M’Mburia, Mary Wanjiku, Titus Ndegwa, and Jane Muthoni, were arrested in different parts of the city on Wednesday.
They were apprehended in the ongoing crackdown on counterfeit products in the market dubbed ‘Operation Uchumi’, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
During the operation, detectives also recovered counterfeit stamps for Tanzania Revenue Authority and Uganda Revenue Authority.
Police said one of the suspects namely Titus Ndegwa, who was arrested at his residence in Thindigua, was found to be a civilian firearm holder whose firearm, a Glock pistol, loaded with 9 rounds of ammunition was confiscated.
The suspects are being held at Muthaiga Police Station awaiting arraignment.
Why arrest the commoners doing criminal things when the high profile politicians are going free will the stolen lot? No one should be arrested because the fish is rotten from the head down to the tail.
If I remember right, a conman once duped a victim into believing he was talking to the then President Uhuru Kenyan and got conned. My countrymen and women have lots of talent if only some of them can steer their skills towards productive and meaningful goals.
