A Zambian national was at the weekend arrested and deported over claims he defrauded a Dutch man Sh170 million in a fake gold deal.


Bupe Chipando alias Elena was deported following his arrest by Transnational and Organised Crimes detectives from his house in Ruaka.


He was deported Sunday night after Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangí signed his deportation order.


Police and immigration officials said they had investigated the matter and established Chipando was in the country illegally and engaging in criminal activities.


He was known among the fake gold dealers as chairman.

Police said he has been operating an international syndicate of fraudsters in Nairobi.


He was also involved in the printing of counterfeit currency in the city that he used to show his targets as a sign of being rich before he defrauded them.


Police say Chipando had been mentioned in several other investigations where foreigners have been defrauded of millions of shillings.


He had posed as a potential supplier of gold to the Dutch national and lured him to Nairobi where he showed him the fake one in a house in Lavington and promised to ship the same to his country.


The foreigner realised he had been conned after paying the Sh170 million downpayment and the gang behind the same was demanding more.
