A Belgian mzungu who blessed his girlfriend with huge money amounting to Ksh 102 million has broken his silence.
Merc De Mesel,bitcoin billionaire, deposited millions in girlfriend’s account raising speculations on illegality of the money.
The Nairobi Technical Training Institute student couldn’t explain the activities of her account which was opened on August, 2, 2021.
Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) believed that the money was part of money laundering after appearing in her account few days after she opened it.
The first deposit of Ksh25,803,756 was made on August 4, 2021. A second deposit of Ksh25,803,756 was made on August 5 with the third and fourth deposits coming in on August 6 but as separate transactions of Ksh25,242,756 and Ksh25,579,356.
The legal battle prompted ARA to summon the student who was not in the country at the time according to her lawyer.
The boyfriend has now opened up how the detectives from CID approached them at their home in Nairobi for questioning.
“My girlfriend explained that the money was a gift from her boyfriend and her account was blocked,” he explained.
