Would you attend a conference to be given free money?
3 Kenyan motivational speakers promising free money have been arrested in Rwanda.
The three were in the country to deliver a "wealth conference" claming people will receive free for attending. They have consequently arrested and charged with fraud after they failed to show up for the conference.
The three are Charles Chege Kinuthia, Rachel Matipei Nashipai and Vivian Khisa Mukhwana Mutenyo. Kinuthia also known as Coach CK is leader of the grouping.
Coach CK is regarded as a successful businessman in the realms of tax, accounting and wealth generation matters in Kenya. He also claims to own several companies across the world and has been featured in local newspapers and on TV as an entrepreneur.
The three were arrested yesterday after almost 5000 attendees arrived at the conference without their presence.
Meanwhile, they have been charged with fraud by Rwanda’s National Prosecution Authority. Prosecutors have accused the trio for sending an e-mail promising over 1,000 people “free money” worth $197 by attending a conference at the Kigali Convention Centre.
A Rwandese man, Mohamad Niyonkuru, is charged alongside them. The charge of fraud carries a sentence of up to three years in jail in Rwanda.
