Manases Kuria Karanja, the owner of unregistered Forex firm, Interweb Global Fortune Ltd was charged in court with seven counts of obtaining Sh3.9 million from victims by false pretences.
That was January 2020, since then, the economy has tanked and the lockdown brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed justice at the courts but the pain pf those that ‘lost’ money now runs deeper than ever.
Good morning Brother Cyprian?
Am one of the leaders of a group of investors that came together to pursue monies invested with an online forex dealer but unfortunately, things went south in Sept 2019.
Let me share with you a small write-up then you can advise on how you can help us expose and pin down the culprit cum conman
CMA HAD WARNED:
— Capital Markets Authority_Kenya (@CMAKenya) September 26, 2019
One Manases Kuria Karanja, Director of Interweb Global Fortune Ltd has been collecting monies from members of the public between Jan 2018 to 31st August 2019 under the guise of doing forex trading for them and promising them 20% interest per month on their investments.
On 1st Sept 2019 he closed Interweb Offices situated at Viewpark Towers,14th Floor claiming he was doing digitization for his operations and was to re-open on 21st Sept 2019 after three weeks.
The next thing we saw is Manases Kuria being arraigned in court on 26th Sept 2019 by Capital Markets Authority for having been operating an online forex brokerage business without a licence.
Some investors came together and went to court to seek for conservatory orders for any monies in his numerous bank accounts(since most funds would be in the trading platform if indeed he was doing forex trading) some of them stated hereunder but on 15th Dec 2019, the prayers were quashed by Hon Andayi of the Criminal Division of the High Court at Milimani claiming that there was no evidence that the said accounts were frozen by CMA and hence he won’t grant our prayers.
The last statement by the Judge was in Kiswahili, “Kila mtu abebe msalaba wake”. It left a lot to be desired.
That is how close to 900 investors (just a small fraction of the thousands of investors who had invested with Interweb) were thrown below the bus and now working on instituting a civil suit to demand their monies as invested (including interests and damages thereof) at Interweb Global Fortune Ltd under one Mr Manases Kuria Karanja as Sole Director.
