Police in Nairobi have arrested a Kenyan man and woman accused of stealing Ksh50 million belonging to their employer, a male Chinese national.

The two are accused of making away with the money on Thursday, February 11 when their employer, Wang Daoli — a resident of Lang’ata — was away celebrating China’s New Year.

Daoli, who stepped out at 6:30pm, left his house under the watch of his maid and driver. In his bedroom, was a safe containing Ksh50 million.

Daoli returned home at 10:30pm and found the safe containing his money missing.

“Police officers visited the scene and established that the bedroom door had not been broken down, hence the possibility of an inside job,” says a police report filed at the Lang’ata Police Station on Friday, February 12 under the OB Number 15/12/2/2021.

Authorities say Daoli’s compound is well-guarded, and had there been a burglary incident, a report on the attack would have been filed by either the driver or maid.

The two employees and two other people were arrested in connection with the theft.

“They are assisting DCI detectives with investigations,” police said.
