Police in Kiambu County have arrested four prison warders for obtaining over Ksh2 million from two Kenyans who had been promised employment letters in the recently concluded police recruitment exercise.

The warders sold fake offer letters to Stellah Kemunto and Joash Ounde, who immediately realized that they had been duped and rushed to Kiamumbi police station to report it.

"An operation to hunt down the rogue warders operating in two vehicles was launched immediately, leading to the arrest of the four at CIATA City mall in Ridgeways, Kiambu county, where they were hawking the documents," police said in a statement.

In the course of the arrest, 20 fake letters were recovered.

"Meanwhile, the main suspect identified as Jefferson Kivuva is still at large, and efforts to arrest him are at advanced stages," police added.

The four suspects are currently in custody pending arraignment tomorrow.
