It is approximated that the cartel steals Ksh1 million of ticket money on daily basis.

Media reports which were confirmed by the police indicated that the cartels colluded with a popular travel agent to block seats immediately the online system is open and resell them at double or triple the prices to other stranded agents or individuals.

The three will be detained in Mombasa until their case is decided.
