Con men target Mau Mau veterans

03 May 2013, 13:41 Wangui Joseph

Mau Mau freedom fighters in Nyeri are calling on the Criminal Investigation Department officers to act on reports that there is a document in circulation seeking their signatures.

Led by their local leader Brigadier John Kiboko, the war veterans said members are signing the document innocently without inquiring about the intentions of the signature collectors.

He said the con men are deceiving them that the signatures will facilitate the release of compensation funds from the British Government regarding a case they filed in a Britain court regarding the torture they underwent during colonialism.

Majority of the members have fallen victims of the con men whom Kiboko said have hidden agenda, saying the letter is in circulation country wide.

He said the document indicates that each member will receive more than KES 300 000 if they win the case.

However, Kiboko urged their lawyers Kamau Kuria and Martin Nderi to look into the matter and advice members to dismiss the letter.

According to the veteran, the con men are taking advantage of the members’ illiteracy.

He informed members that compensation funds have never been released by British Government and if it happens, all members will be notified.
