GODIAN Mwaluma Mwalungwa has been charged in a Nairobi court with ruining such a holiday!
Actually, he is charged with obtaining money by false pretences, or simply put, conning a holiday maker of Ksh663,800 by falsely pretending to offer accommodation, air transfers and tours within Mombasa county after being contacted as travel agent.
The suspect has been released on a bond of Ksh300,000 with a surety of a similar amount or a cash bail of Ksh200,000.
Hearing is on March 5 2018.
Police say Mwaluma was contacted at Real Mark Travel and siphoned Ksh663,800 from a businessman and his family who wanted to have a nine day vacation at the Coast by promising them to book them at the Whitesands Hotel…transport, air tickets accommodation.
The money was sent to his account at NIC bank in full.
Mwaluma then calls his client on the eve of Christmas and now refers him to Pride-Inn which he says “is a better deal” and surely the family travels down to the coast, and holidays at Pride-Inn only to be embarrassed at check out when a bill of Ksh545,000 is demanded for accommodation before departure…
Mwaluma is called on phone and he says he has no money, police records read.
