Police in Nairobi have launched a manhunt for a woman and man believed to be members of the ‘Mchele gang’.

The money was allegedly taken from Robert Mugi Wahome, who was having fun at the Shamilla Villa Club in Embakasi when the woman who later drug him and stole from him joined him.

A day after being robbed, Mr. Wahome reported the incident to the police at Embakasi under OB number 20/22/04/2022.

Jesse Mwangi Muthee and Martin Maina Waigwa were detained as a result of investigations conducted by detectives working for the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

“They were arrested on July 15, for the suspicion of having committed an offence of stealing contrary to section 268 as read section 275 of the penal code,” a detective said in a miscellaneous application filed at the Makadara law courts.

Mr. Waigwa allegedly received Sh300,000 from the victim’s bank account, while Mr. Mwangi allegedly received Sh399,000. It is also claimed that Mr. Wahome received sh100,000 from the account.

Mr Peter Njonjo, the investigating officer, narrated that after enjoying drinks with the lady they both went to his house but woke up the following day to find the woman had already left.

A watch, a national identification card, two ATM cards for Equity and Cooperative banks, and his two mobile phones—a Huawei and a Hisense, both registered to the Safaricom network—were also missing.

According to Mr. Njonjo, the victim made the decision to visit the Equity Bank branch within Taj Mall where he discovered out that Sh1.1 million was irregularly transferred from his account to the three accounts.

“The lady who was with the complainant has not been arrested thus we need time to arrest her together with Mr Anthony Waithaka Macharia who also received Sh100,000.”
