Danson Mungatana will be the name on many people’s lips in the future. Why? His losing a cool 76 million shillings to a bunch of con-men.
The whole sad tale has been covered in my article:
That Mungatana was conned is troubling but what is more worrying are the lengths to which he went to, so as to gather the money that he would give the conmen.
According to reports in the Nairobian, Mungatana was so dazzled by the 3 conmen namely; Abdoulaye Tamba Kouro, his son, Abdala Tamba and Kenyan Anthony Mangangi Munyiva, that he decided to sell his Mercedes Benz.
Mungatana, according to the Nairobian is alleged to have given the West Africans his car to sell and add the proceeds to be used to purchase the “wash wash” chemicals for turning the dirty money into a billion shillings!
That is not all, the con-men were still not satisfied with the money they had got from the intelligent politician, they asked for more. And what did the ever-enterprising politician do? Refuse? Nah! That is not what smart investors like Mungatana operate.
He went and sold a piece of prime real-estate located in Karen! He then gave them the proceeds to top up on the initial sum!
But the ever brilliant Mungatana realized that all was not well and that he had being taken for a ride. So he then went to the Nairobi Area Police to report the matter. The police confiscated the Mercedes Benz to be used as an exhibit in the case.
As of today, the politician has refused to write a statement due to the embarrassing nature of his situation.
Mungatana could not be reached for a comment.
