A man has been charged in a Nairobi court for several offences of obtaining money by false pretences targeting foreign nationals.
In a statement dated May 22, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said George Onyango Handa was on Thursday arrested by DCI officers working at the Department of Immigration for swindling foreign nationals and giving them fake Permanent Residency Certificates.
"The fraudster has been engaging in the illegal activities with his accomplices who are still at large," said DCI.
Further investigation is ongoing with a view to prefer more offences and net his accomplices.
