Nine suspects arrested in the USD 439 trillion mega scam have on Tuesday been released on Ksh 300,000 cash bail each.
Issuing the orders was Milimani Magistrate Wandia Nyamu who noted that the court did not fight any reason to keep holding the suspects.
“I hereby release the accused persons on a cash bail of Sh300,000 or a bond of 500,000 each,” said the Magistrate.

Nyamu continued by requesting Kayombo Jean the foreigner to deposit his travel documents at the court and offer two Kenyans as his surerity.
Eight of the nine suspects were arrested at a godown in Embakasi Nairobi where they were planning to defraud the two foreigners in the pretext that they would send the money to Dubai.
“Allegedly, the complainants had entered into a cash on transit deal involving USD 439 trillion destined for Dubai from the Central Bank of Togo.
The caller who posed as a customs officer convinced the complainants that the first batch of 40 pallets contained USD 4 billion and that they were being flown through Kenya to facilitate their clearance and smooth entry to Dubai.” said DCI
