Serious Crime Unit detectives have today arrested Peter Wangai Muriithi, Founder, Chairman & CEO Goldenscape Group Limited.

Mr Wangai through his company lured investors to invest in Greenhouses that were to be set up in Ol Kalou, Nyahururu & other places which never materialised.

He will be charged with the offence of obtaining money by false pretenses, conspiracy to defraud, false representation, issuing bad cheques among other charges. Several of his victims have recorded statements at the DCI headquaters.

He has since been into hiding after he failed to pay investors their dues in December, amounting to millions of shillings.
