Detectives from the Flying Squad unit have arrested six people in connection to 50 kilograms of fake gold busted at Yaya Centre in Kilimani, Nairobi.
Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri has confirmed the Monday incident.
Last month, another bunch of suspected fake gold was recovered in a safe box at Queens Way Barclays branch, Nairobi.
Eric Adede, the owner of the safe box containing Sh2 billion suspected fake currency, has since been charged along side four other suspects.
