Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) have arrested a former Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) soldier with fake KDF registration documents.
Washington Mutinda Mutuku was on Wednesday February 17, 2021 found with forged military registration letters at Gallas restaurant in Machakos County.
Reports from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) have revealed that the former KDF soldier had defrauded two people that he would help them secure a chance to join the army in the ongoing KDF recruitment exercise.
Mr. Mutuku is alleged to have lured the unsuspecting men into his trap with signed letters indicating that he had a high rank in the KDF forces.
The two men were found with KSh. 180,000 which Mr. Mutuku had demanded from them before handing over the letters inviting them to join the KDF.
“The suspect was proud that he was the Commander-in-Chief of the KDF and through him the two men would have received a call to join the army,” police statement read.
The detectives have stated that the investigations over the matter are ongoing to determine other individuals behind crime.
They warned desperate Kenyans to be on high alert over those pretending to be in a position to help them get recruited in the forces.
“If you are caught bribing and receiving it, you will be dealt with accordingly, the law must be followed,” statement from DCI reads in part.
