Thursday, May 16, 2019- DCI detectives have arrested a renowned fraudster Jared Otieno as the crackdown on gold scammers in Kenya gathers momentum.
Jared Otieno came to the limelight in 2015 when he went to pay dowry for his Meru in Meru aboard Chopper and several top of the range cars.
He would later tie the knot at Windsor in a lavish wedding ceremony attended by senior politicians such as Amason Kingi, Kiraitu Murungi, James Orengo and the crème de la crème of the Kenya entertainment industry.
While his source of immense wealth has remained a mystery, he has often been mentioned in con schemes.
But on Wednesday, heavily armed policemen from the DCI raided Jared’s palatial house in Karen looking for him.
While he was not around, police took crucial documents and computers and towed away luxurious vehicles, including a brand new Bentley, and a Sh30 million customized Porsche; the same one Jared went to Meru for the dowry ceremony in.
Reports also indicate that Jared had not just bought the house at Sh110 million in cash and he was in the process of furnishing it.
said a police officer involved in the investigation.
He was later arrested and is in police custody.
