A man and two women, who recorded a video as they partied in a house and displayed wads of cash, are now on police radar.
Detectives now believe the three, who appeared to be intoxicated, are part of fraudsters nicknamed “wash-wash”.
The video circulated on various platforms, including one run by undercover detectives in Nairobi intended to warn armed robbers to reform before they are executed.
“Detectives are looking for four ‘wash wash’ suspects, believed to be part of a larger syndicate in the illegal business of printing counterfeit money,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) shared online.
Adding that: “In video clips doing the rounds in social media sections, three of the suspects were captured beating one of their accomplices with a dog, after he went partying and flashed a pile of notes flanked by a multitude of beauties, revealing their dirty relationships.”
Detectives added that the man in the clip was flaunting money while promising the seemingly horny women a trip out of town.
It is believed that the crew in the video broke into the home of one of their gang members and swooped down on him, ruthlessly accusing him of disloyalty and betrayal.
