Felista Nyamathira Njoroge dominated the weekend headlines after news emerged that she was in possession of over Ksh 100 million in her bank account.

The news broke last week after the public found out that she was under investigation by the Asset Recovery Agency.

The 21-year-old Felesta said that the money had been deposited in her account by her Belgian boyfriend Marc De Mesel, who as it turns out, is a dollar millionaire.

In a video he posted on social media, Mesel corroborated her version of events, saying that they felt unsafe in Kenya and prayed that the matter could be solved quickly.

“As investors with every exchange and every bank, you need to do this constantly and there is a trace on where the money is coming from. It’s from my investments and my brokerage,” the cryptocurrency investor stated.

Adding;

“I knew there were more unlawful activities in Africa than Europe but without any notice, summon or question by police, suddenly being apprehended in my home, seizing my laptop, phone and passport, taken away handcuffed, as well as my pregnant girlfriend, I did not expect. Turns out we were believed to be part of a money-laundering scheme due to a bank gift I had made to my girlfriend, and for which we had submitted the requested paperwork to the bank. We are not feeling safe anymore in Kenya.”
