“The suspect together with others he had introduced as an ‘Engineer’& a ‘senior staff’ at the Chinese company forged an agreement for the supply of ballast and in the process they defrauded the victim the said amount,” said the DCI.

Mr. Mburu, who is set to be arraigned on Tuesday, will face charges of – among other things — making a document without authority.

The DCI further stated that they are in pursuit of the other two suspects.
