The victims an Australian man and his Ugandan wife were lured to come to Kenya to seal a gold business deal before they were ambushed by 10 men who roughed up both the man and woman and stealing their cash and valuables.

“Once at the agreed venue, Felix sent a driver who picked them in a Toyota Prado and drove them to the office setting building along Glory Rd in Runda, where more than 10 men lay in wait.

On arrival at their snare, gears shifted fast from the initial VIP treatment to a rough up that subdued them, with the man suffering hefty blows and strangulation that left his wife begging for their lives.

She was not spared either as the gang handcuffed and slapped her repeatedly as they touched her inappropriately. Eventually, the $60,000 the couple had carried in cash was robbed off, including other jewelries valued at over $30,000.” said DCI

An operation to arrest the suspects led to the recovery of money counting machines, metallic boxes, forged certificates of mines, customs reflector jackets, military boots, KRA certificates, stamps, a Kenyan flag and fake golden metal bars.
