Goldenscape Group Limited founder and CEO Peter Wangai Muriithi was Thursday arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts for allegedly defrauding unsuspecting victims of millions of shillings through fake greenhouse investment deals.

Wangai appeared before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku where he was charged with several counts of obtaining money by false pretense.

He denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Ksh.2 million.

The court further directed that he deposits his passport with the court, this after the victim’s lawyer argued that the accused was a flight risk.

The matter will be mentioned on April 1, 2020.

Wangai obtained varying amounts of money from various individuals between 2019 and 2020, promising them of handsome returns on their investments.
