A college girl who received more than Sh100 million from her Belgian boyfriend has lost the money to the state.

High Court Judge Esther Maina forfeited the monies to the state saying it is part of a money laundering scheme

“Upon consideration of evidence, and all materials placed before me. I am satisfied those two accounts are liable for forfeiture to the state. There is obvious money laundering with respect to the funds,” she said.

Maina allowed the application filed by the Assets Recovery Agency saying the source of the cash in Felesta Njoroge’s accounts was not explained.

According to ARA, the student at Nairobi Technical Training Institute said she received the money from Marc De Mesel, her Belgian boyfriend.

Documents filed in court showed that the Belgian wired $229,980 on August 4, 2021, followed with $231,980 the following day.

On August 6, Mesel wired the money twice in batches of $224,980 and $227,980.

The student was invited by the agency on October 18, to shed light on the money but she failed to honour the summons.

During the hearing of the case, the ARA told the court that after completing investigations, they established that the 21-year-old student executed a complex scheme of money laundering designed to conceal and disguise the nature and sources of her funds.

They said the cash was part of a money laundering scheme or proceeds of crime.
