DCI Detectives Arrest Wash Wash Guys


DCI Detectives have arrested three suspects linked to a money laundering cartel in Nairobi’s Kileleshwa area.

The three  Abdulaziz Ibrahim Hassan, 54, Dorcas Ntoya, 34 and 26-year-old Arum Bob Busimbi were found with fake local and foreign currencies.

The Thursday evening operation led detectives to Midea Apartments, house number 101 where a machine believed to be used in making the currencies was also discovered.

“The detectives acting on intelligence, had launched an operation at Midea Apartment’s house number 101, therein ambushing. The three are believed to be part of a syndicate that is behind the rising cases of money laundering, commonly known as wash wash,” read a statement by the DCI.

Several fake US dollar notes in denominations of 100 and a machine believed to be used in developing the fake notes were found in the house and the basement parking.

“In a Honda Fit KCY 695X owned by one of the suspects, detectives recovered three copies of a fake letter purportedly from the Central Bank of Kenya notifying receipt of Sh 10billion, two copies of United Nation invoices, a forged anti-money laundering clearance certificate, a packet of white powder labeled ‘Best Quality Laundry Starch’, a bottle containing bluish fluid, 45 USD notes in 100 denominations and 166 notes of Kenyan currency in Sh1000 denominations,” said the DCI

Ethan Mureithi, a 54 year old caretaker of the apartment was also arrested for attempting to block the DCI from conducting an operation within the facility.

The three are currently in police custody pending arraignment in court.

Their vehicle was also impounded.
