Detectives from the Serious Crimes Unit of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday arrested Goldenscape Group Limited boss Peter Wangai Muriithi.

According to police, Mr. Wangai lured investors to invest in greenhouses that were reportedly to be set up in Ol Kalou and Nyahururu among other places.

However, as the detectives stated, this turned out to be a fraudulent investment deal and many of the victims have since recorded statements at the DCI headquarters.

The Goldenscape Founder and CEO now faces charges of obtaining money by false pretences, conspiracy to defraud, false representation, and issuing bad cheques.
