Man conned by friends



Police are looking for three men who defrauded their friend of Sh 360,000 in fraudulent generator sale deal in Embakasi.

The suspects involved in the fraud – Elvis Otieno Benson, Ramesh Valji Vaghjiyali and Samuel Joe Abade – are being sought for allegedly conning businessman Frankline Sila Mutua of the cash.


The three purported to be salesmen of a company dealing in sale of high capacity generators and were selling one of the electricity equipment to Mutua at Sh 370,000.

They allegedly defrauded Mutua of cash sent in different amounts via M-Pesa to numbers provided as the company’s. There after all three suspects switched of their phones after receiving the cash.

Mutua sent different amounts of cash on diverse dates between March 2018 and May this year before he realized he had been conned.

The suspects stopped picking his calls after he enquired about delivery of the equipment prompting him to report the matter to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Embakasi.


Corporal Joseph Kibet of Embakasi DCI offices obtained orders at the Makadara Law Courts compelling Safaricom to furnish him with details of the multiple mobile phone numbers used by the suspects.

Principal Magistrate Merissa Opondo ordered Safaricom’s police liaison officer to furnish Kibet with the registration details of the said phone numbers and their M-Pesa statements.

The officer will provide the DCI with similar documents for the recipients of the cash from the phone numbers that received cash from Mutua as the final beneficiaries of the stolen funds.

Kibet said the numbers are suspected to be fraudulent numbers used for transfer of stolen cash.

VIDEO: The real reason Betty Kyallo has left K24



Details have now emerged on the circumstances surrounding the exit of Betty Kyallo from K24 where she has served a start anchor for the past two years.

Despite the assumptions that Betty quit, Pulse Live Kenya can exclusively report that her exit from the station was a result of being declared redundant in far-reaching structural changes which will be rolled out this week.

While announcing her exit, Betty did not reveal the circumstances under which she was leaving, only saying her reign had come to an end.

“I really appreciated you all. It’s now time for me to say Goodbye here on K24 TV, if we meet again great, if not you know how you can find me on all my social media platforms, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, Betty Kyallo lately its going to be popping and we are going to be doing great things there. Thank you so much for all your support I appreciate You God bless you and I love you. Good Night,” she said.

A source at Mediamax, who is aware of the matter, revealed that K24 will be doing away with its entire newsroom in a new deal that will see them partner with KTN for the news feed.

The changes effectively do away with the need for news anchors and reporters who will be sent home in a mass firing in the course of the coming week.

K24’s political anchor Anne Kiguta will, however, be spared from the firing as her show Punchline will be the only news-related show that will air on K24.

The drastic reforms have caused distress among K24 reporters who will now battle unemployment during the Covid19 crisis.

Veteran editor Peter Opondo recently resigned from the station in protest to the changes that are said to have come from the board of the Kenyatta-family owned media company.
