A shady businessman has been accused of conning Kiss 100 Radio presenter Caroline Mutoko out of Sh1 million during her social campaign to equip secondary schools in rural areas with water tanks was charged on Thursday 12.
George Titi Kadu defrauded the presenter by pretending to be an agent of an international company and that he would supply 16 tanks to schools in Kenya, but with the financial support from the presenter.
Being the torch bearer of the education campaign, she was called Kadu and was informed that he would supply the schools through Otung Limited. But the schools which were to receive the tanks were contacted, administrators said they had received no water tank.
When Caroline contacted Pioneer Water Tanks head offices in Australia, but they disowned Kadu saying they had even told him to stop using their name.
Kadu said has denied the charge before a court in Kibera.
The case will be heard on January 13 next year.
