The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday, May 19 disclosed worrying details about Samuel Mugoh Muvota, the man who was shot six times and killed at Mirema drive, Nairobi County.
According to DCI, the deceased had a criminal past in what they titled, "Inside the dark life of slain thug Samuel Mugoh Muvota."
Detectives now claim the late Mugoh lived a criminal life and started stealing from victims in early 2011.
"The findings have revealed skeletons in the man’s dark life dating as far back as 2011, when Muvota started stealing from victims at ATM’s in various banks and graduated to a full time thug who hired beautiful, expensive-looking women and deployed them as drinks spiking agents at various high end entertainment spots.
"By the time he met his death on Monday after six bullets were pumped into his body by an unknown assailant, Muvota who headed an ATM and SIM swapping syndicate that operated like a mafia criminal organization, was a multi millionaire with several real estate properties scattered across the city, a fleet of vehicles and 7 wives all living lavishly from proceeds of stupefied patrons in clubs most frequented by revelers. Interestingly, none of the wives suspected that Muvota lived a double life.
"So lucrative was Muvota’s trade that he had recruited over 50 voluptuous damsels into his ‘Pishori’ administering trade, that has led to broken marriages, left many men admitted in hospitals and others dead from an overdose of a stupefying drug only identified as ‘Tamuu’ supposed to be administered to patients suffering from mental disorders," DCI said.
According to Economic Crimes detectives who have previously handled his cases, Muvota was arrested for over 30 times in the past 11 years on fraud related charges and had been in and out of almost all the courts in the city and in Kiambu county.
Detectives believe that the thug worked with crooked banking officials who assisted him clean up accounts in a matter of minutes.
DCI says that he particularly had a preference for Co-operative bank ATMs and had connections at several police stations and whenever detectives launched a manhunt for him, he would be tipped off in time.
