Fake Gold Dealers Arrested – Milimani Law Courts arraigned Patrick Ngare, Kelvin Mwaura Ngotho, and Congolese Muke Wa Mansoni Didier yesterday for their involvement in a gold scam valued at Sh65 Million. The suspects were accused of deceiving Iranian national Sadegh Sadeghan by offering to sell him 60 kilograms of gold.

Subsequent to striking an arrangement, both parties agreed to put up a deposit of USD 50,000$ before transferring the remaining balance of USD450,000$. Following the agreement, Sadegh was acquainted with three firms that were purportedly capable of bringing about the transaction. Among them was Newline Logistics Limited, under the helm of an unidentified CEO Mark and his accomplice Calvin Ngotho. It was later uncovered that Calvin Ngotho was in fact Kelvin Mwaura Ngotho.

Sadegh enlisted the services of Oriex International Cargo Freight and Royal Ultra Vault Limited to transport a consignment. However, when the agreed delivery date passed without any indication of the consignment’s whereabouts, Sadegh grew suspicious. He sought the help of detectives, who eventually apprehended three suspects. Among the items recovered were a Steyr pistol, 103 rounds of 9mm ammunition, a firearm certificate, and Sh600,000 in cash.
