A journalist with the Nation Media Group has reportedly lost Sh3 million in a fake car deal with a local businessman.

James Onyango, a Daily Nation sub-editor based Nairobi, is said to have lost the money to hotelier Emmanuel Mulobi Musebe.

Reports indicate Musebe fraudulently obtained the money in exchange for a Range Rover registration number KBU 220Q, but failed to produce the car as agreed.

The fraud prompted the journalist to report the matter to the police leading to the arrest of Musebe.

The case is set to be mentioned on April 23.
