Kiambu county staff arrested in Parklands ferrying US dollars worth Sh6m

Detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday arrested two Kiambu County staff members who were in possession of US dollars notes worth Sh6 million.

The detectives had flagged down the car on Mpaka Road in Parklands area on suspicion of having fake registration numbers.

But what they found inside the Toyota double cabin of registration number GK 565C left them even more shocked.

Also found in the car is an official United Nations rubber stamp.

The two suspects, Ms Faith Harrison and Mr Harrison Kungu, have denied ownership of the money.

“Detectives intercepted a Motor Vehicle along Mpaka road in Parklands on suspicion of having Fake registration numbers and arrested two suspects,” a statement from the DCI read.

The detectives said a search on the database of National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) revealed that the vehicle was not bearing its genuine registration numbers.

The DCI said that investigations into the matter are ongoing.

“The two suspects both denied that they owned the cash that was found in the vehicle. Further investigations are ongoing,” the DCI said.
