Two men have been arrested for personating the Deputy Inspector General of Kenya police Edward Mbugua.
One of them had opened a fake Facebook account that he managed personating Mbugua. He also had two different mobile numbers which he had registered using Mbugua’s name.
Police said they arrested one suspect in Donholm and the second one in Kahawa West estate, Nairobi and recovered a pair of handcuff and a rubber stamp of the ministry of devolution.
Central police boss Mark Wanjala said the arrests were made after they received complaints from unsuspecting members of the public that they had been conned.
One of the suspects, Philemon Mutiva Esioko has been running the Facebook account where he updated it posting Mbugua’s images. He also posed as Mbugua’s personal assistant.
