The KK security employee who escaped with Ksh 25 million has been arrested in Homa Bay.
The security employee identified as Hudson Nyasaka escaped after he landed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi from Mombasa.
The money, which Nyasaka was transporting, was said to be in foreign currencies of USD (50,000), Euros (98,500) and Swiss Franc (90,000) meant to be delivered to Trust Bank in Nairobi.
Nyasaka was slated to arrive Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at 7:30 am, but lied that he will be arriving 2 hours later at 9:30 am. He also lied about the terminal in which the flight he was aboard was supposed to land on.
Upon arrival, Nyasaka switched off his phone and disappeared with the cash. His colleagues realized he had misled them only after waiting for him for two hours and reported immediately to airport police.
A manhunt which lasted over a week lead to his arrest in Homa Bay by the police.
This is the second incident in 2 years connected with a KK security employee disappearing with millions of shillings on the same route travelling from Mombasa to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi.
In 2014, a van belonging to KK Logistics, an arm of KK Securities that handles cash-in-transit, was found abandoned in the Mathare area of Nairobi.
The armored car was transporting an estimated KSh 80 million from a bank in Westlands to Central Bank of Kenya before disappearing. The van was later discovered but the cash and crew of the security firm were at large.
