    "Tumeweza kupata huyu hapa, mnaona kweli ni mtu ameshiba vizuri kwa sababu amekula mali ya wananchi kwelikweli.Leo tumeweza kumshika (We caught the suspect, as you can see, he is well built because he has looted from the public and is now rich. Today we have apprehended him),” Ngondi stated.

    The video soon went viral as netizens were quick to point out the unique description uttered by Ngondi. 

    According to the police boss, the suspect was caught with Ksh2 million of fake currency that he used to swindle unsuspecting Kenyans.

    The suspect was apprehended by the police at a hotel in Tharaka Nithi County which he had been using as his hideout. Reports indicate that he mainly targeted victims in Embu and Tharaka Nithi Counties.

    According to the police boss Ngondi, the suspect had conned an unsuspecting victim the previous day, of money worth Ksh50,000.

    He cautioned Kenyans to be extra vigilant while dealing with currency to ensure the fake money does not circulate within the economy.

    Fake money syndicates, popularly known as "wash wash", have been rampant in the country. 

    Recently, a similar case occurred in Tharaka Nithi County where a suspect was accused of running a fake money syndicate.

    The suspect further revealed to the police that he had stolen Ksh20 million from Al Shabaab given as ransom during his time in Somalia.
