Kiambu Boy blows all the money on gambling after Stealing Ksh 580k from an elderly Lady – Loses Ksh 324,110 on live bets in a day

In a disturbing incident in Githunguri, a young veterinarian known as Tawi Farm on social media, specifically TikTok, swindled an elderly woman out of KES 580,000. He employed a cunning tactic by sharing enticing photos and videos of a renowned dairy farm in Githunguri, supposedly without the owner’s knowledge or consent.

Githunguri has become a hotspot for fraudulent activities, with unscrupulous individuals regularly advertising non-existent farms on platforms like Jumia, Jiji, Facebook, and Instagram. Their sole purpose is to deceive unsuspecting buyers.

When a potential farm catches the eye of a victim, these brokers physically escort them to a location and impersonate the owners or managers, leaving the unsuspecting buyers unknowingly trapped in a fraudulent deal. While a few of these brokers might be genuine, many are, in fact, criminals posing as dairy farmers.

Now, turning our attention back to the case of the gambling veterinarian, this individual received a payment of KES 580,000 to deliver cows to a farmer, a responsibility he woefully failed to fulfill. Instead, he got ensnared in a gambling spree. When authorities eventually apprehended him in his hideout in Njoro, it was a startling revelation that his bank account had been entirely depleted.

Incredibly, he had squandered half a million Kenyan shillings on gambling in a single weekend. A closer examination of his Mozzart betting statement revealed that on Sunday, the 15th, he placed KES 324,110 on live bets, all of which resulted in losses.

A review of his betting history over the past week unmistakably highlighted the devastating impact of his gambling addiction. This gambling frenzy in Kenya is akin to a ticking time bomb, with lives and livelihoods at stake.

Currently, the individual is in custody after pleading guilty, and his sentencing is slated for the 15th of November. It is highly likely that he will face a substantial prison term for his actions. It is a poignant reminder of the consequences of one’s actions, leaving both him and his ill-fated financial decisions in dire straits.

During interrogations, it appeared as though he was under some sort of spell. When handed his phone to contact family and friends for assistance, he astonishingly left only 4,000 Kenyan shillings in his M-Pesa account. This revelation must have been particularly distressing for his family, especially his mother in Njoro, who had made sacrifices for her son, only to see him end up in jail, chasing an illusory and extravagant lifestyle.
