We’ve heard of Wilkins Fadhili, who was exposed as a fraudster by several local celebs, cons who impersonated President Uhuru, and now Peter Manjau.
Peter, who’s based in Nakuru country has been masquerading as a Citizen TV reporter, conning people of their hard-earned cash promising to run their stories on Citizen TV.
On Tuesday, Manjau alongside two other imposters Doreen Waiganjo and Githaiga Karanja was arrested for masquerading as Citizen TV reporters. The suspects wanted to interview ex-NACADA boss John Mututho.
Speaking to Citizen TV, he said,
‘They started contacting me today morning at around 8 a.m. and by 10 a.m., they had made around 10 calls. They were putting pressure on me and told me that the report was needed for the 1 p.m. bulletin…I wondered why they needed coronavirus-related information from me.’
Mututho smelled a rat and immediately alerted the police who arrested the trio.
Manjau, the leader of the group was accused of extorting several people in Nairobi, Nyeri, Nakuru among them a mother whose daughter is battling lung cancer.
Manjau’s social media pages are dotted with photos of him posing with politicians and celebs which is common among most conmen. This makes it easy for their prey to believe them.
