Charlton says that he came to know of the activities of the imposter after a former boxer came to their home in Siaya looking for Conjestina’s son saying that he had stolen his phone.
The boxer who Charlton did not name said that the impostor approached him at the gym claiming to be the son of Conje and that he needed help.
The boxer hosted the boy for the night but later on the boy disappeared with his phone.
“After the boy disappeared, the former boxer traced our home in Siaya. When he got there, he asked for Conjestina’s son. When I told him it was me he said no. We then asked him who he was looking for, that’s when he gave the story of con artist. He got bewildered after he realized that he was scammed,” he said.
Charlton the only child of Conjestina said that he again heard of the man after his friends called him to inquire of his welfare a while back.
He however ignored them saying that he wanted to avoid the media limelight.
The 24 year old said that after the boxer’s incident he decided to contact the man on Facebook and they have been talking for a while.
He said that he decided to befriend the guy so as to set a trap on him a situation that has been impossible saying that the guy has been very hard to corner.
“I reached out to him on Facebook and reprimanded him for using my name to get money and despite apologizing he has not stopped” he exclaimed.
He said that on doing further investigation he found out the man has even conned prominent personalities among them, Kisumu County Governor Professor Anyang Nyongo.
Charlton has however reported the matter to the police station and is expected to record a statement today.
