Kenyan man arrested for impersonating magistrate

Police in Kenya is holding a 28-year-old man who is allegedly impersonating a magistrate at Nakuru Law Courts.

Victor Kiprono Ng’eno was nabbed on Saturday in Nakuru, northwest of Nairobi, by the detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) after being on the run for three years.

The suspect is said to have obtained about $16000 from a man promising to expedite the determination of an ongoing civil case against him that he was privy to, in his favour.

The complainant was shocked when he enquired about the "magistrate" at the courts, only to be told that no one by Ng'eno's name and description was ever a judicial officer anywhere in the county.

His efforts to reach Ng'eno by all means previously used went futile, as the latter vanished with his felonious kill.

“Devastated by the turn of events that regrettably left him poorer, the victim reported the matter to Nakuru detectives, who have since maintained Ng'eno's name on the wanted list of notorious fraudsters,” said DCI.

Ng'eno returned to Nakuru County with his usual attire and style, hoping that three years would be too long for his manhunt.

His most dreaded moment arrived on Saturday when he felt cold metal cuffs touch his wrists before he could fully regain his calm and strike again.
