Gor Mahia Organizing Secretary Judith Nyangi was this morning arrested for allegedly defrauding a fan by the name Dave Last Born Ksh 60,000 and is currently held at Buruburu Police Station.
Dave reportedly gave Nyangi the amount to help her secure a return air ticket to Algiers, Algeria for him for the Gor Mahia’s final group match of the CAF Confederation Cup against USM Algiers in August this year but this did not happen.
“Nyangi told me that the Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa had given her two return tickets to Algiers and that she could give me one at Ksh 60,000.
“At that time the cheapest return ticket to Algiers was going for 110,000 and so I sent the amount via MPESA. Unfortunately after paying her, she started taking me in circles, forcing me to cough up Ksh 190,000 to secure another ticket.
“After returning to Kenya, she promised to refund me the money but nothing up to now. She has since refused to pay saying she does not owe me any money,” Dave told Kahawa Tungu.
According to Dave, Nyangi has been bragging that she is close to the Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and no legal action can be taken against her.
“It has been tough seeking legal redress but we have managed to go through the Director of Public Prosecution’s office and they have helped make the arrest possible.”
