DCI Sleuth Edward Mwaniki Arrested For Defrauding Woman With Promise Of Fake Prisons Jobs

A DCI sleuth based at Kisauni has been arrested for allegedly obtaining money by false pretences.

Police Constable Edward Mwaniki Kabachia is accused of promising an unidentified woman jobs for her two relatives during the Kenya Prisons recruitment exercise back in 2017.

“Police Constable Edward Mwaniki Kabachia, a DCI detective based at Kisauni has been arrested following an incident where he obtained a substantial amount of money from a lady by falsely pretending that he was capable of securing her two relatives job vacancies…” DCI tweeted.

His arrest follows the conclusion of an inquiry by DCI Likoni where it was recommended that the officer be charged with the offence of obtaining money by false pretences contrary to Section 313 of the Penal Code.

Chapter 63 of the Penal Code states: “Any person who by any false pretence, and with intent to defraud, obtains from any other person anything capable of being stolen, or induces any other person to deliver to any person anything capable of being stolen, is guilty of a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for three years. “

Kabachia will be arraigned today (Wednesday), DCI said.
