A middle aged man is in police custody for conning passengers their bus fare.
Members of county assembly apprehended him and took him to police after conning them bus fare to mombasa.
They recorded the statement with police and called for his prosecution.
Police said that there was several complains by other passengers who fell victim of his scheme.
” I paid him KSH 3000 to mombasa I have been waiting for two days now. Yesterday the classic sacco men assisted me with a mattress to sleep on because I didn’t have a place to sleep, he told me that the mash poa bus was to come and pick me from here. I don’t know how I will get back my money because that is all I had, said an old woman who was also a victim.
The MCAs are urging all members who have been conned by him to report at the police station for more investigations.
” I am happy that we caught him and took him to police, people like this should be jailed for lying to the public and conning them. We urge the police to take action and arrest other culprits,” noted Kapkangani ward MCA Eliud Kirongo.
The Mash poa Management distanced themselves from the agent and promised to cooperate with the authorities.
