The mastermind behind a fake job racked that has seen many unsuspecting Kenyans lose their hard-earned cash has been arrested.

Suspect Boniface Ouko 29 was arrested by detectives at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Friday evening.

Ouko has been defrauding desperate job seekers of their money by offering nonexistent jobs at JKIA.

Detectives based at JKIA laid a trap for Ouko and he seems not to have known any better. 

One detective posed as a jobseeker and sought the help of Ouko in securing a job.

He was indeed offered a financial analyst’s position purportedly by a ground handling company at JKIA called eurocraft agencies.

Of course, all that came at a cost in form of fees which included an interview fee, uniform fee, medical fee, security pass fee and several others.

Ouko, who was operating under an alias name Peter Kamuri to avoid detection also developed a fake eurocraft security pass.


Detectives are currently holding Ouko at JKIA police station where he is waiting for his arraignment in court on Monday.

Police are urging any persons who may have fallen victims to the fraudster’s scams to visit the DCI offices at JKIA and file a report.
