A Kenyan Fugitive Evades the US Law and Hides from Prosecution

John Mbugua Mwangi, aka John Maina Mwangi, a Kenyan fugitive in the US

A Kenyan fugitive has  evaded the  US law and has been hiding from prosecution. The  Kenyan who escaped from custody in Kenya  after stealing millions of Kenya shillings from Kenyans, has escaped prosecution in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA., where he was accused of theft and intimidation. Mr. John Mbugua Mwangi was to appear for sentencing at an Indianapolis court on 3rd of April 2012 but he did not show up. Soon the court issued a warrant of arrest and he is being sought up to this day.

A few months before this incident he was masquerading a business consultant in Massachusetts. While there, he received large sums of money from many Kenyans who hoped to gain from his perceived knowledge in business consultancy.

In Kenya where his real name was John Maina Mwangi, he left many Kenyans crying, as they wondered how he was able to escape from custody, after he was accused of robbing them money in the guise of buying then vehicles. It was after his escape from custody in Kenya,  he changed his name to John Mbugua Mwangi, to enable him to fly out to the United States of America undetected.

In USA he has subjected many women into agony and frustration after defrauding them money pretending he would sell them shares in his home care company. He has been targeting women who did not have proper documents to live in USA to avoid prosecution. John Maina Mwangi Aka John Mbugua Mwangi is trying to evade justice and is believed to be hiding in Massachusetts.

The Kenya Government should cooperate with the US government so that he would answer for all the crimes he has committed.  At the same time Kenyans living in Massachusetts and elsewhere in USA, should be on the look out for this man who has destroyed the lives of many Kenyans both in Kenya and in USA. They should report him to the US authorities on sight.

This man need to be captured, he is dangerous. He recognizes himself as a pastor and as gynecologist, he holds seminars in different places as a business consultant, please be aware he is a Conman. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, please inform the authorities. He has caused a lot of pain to most of our dear sisters and brothers from Kenya.

We have all heard the comment “Buyer Be Ware”, but also Employee Be Ware. I worked for this “conmen” for a short period of time, as I look back, even working for one day for him was a mistake. He is very sly and a great salesman, and even better by making false promises, all under the pretext that he is a very religious man, and if he has made mistakes in the past he has changed, and should be forgiven. A zebra does not change its stripes, a conman also does not change, it is in his nature to keep doing the same thing. When my first paycheck bounced  I should have known better than to go back there and continue working for him, and helping him create his first business manuals. But being taken by the best conmen, I continued for another two weeks with promises that he will make up the bounced checks. The legal system here in the United States protect the guilty, and makes the innocent feel like the guilty party until the innocent plaintiff is so exhausted that they just give up and decide the battle is not worth it. (After going to small claims court multiple times, and usually being reset for another time, you just finally give up.)

This man is very dangerous and he prays on the weak, the helpless, the innocent, and anyone that would listen to him and would like to have a more financially rewarding life. The only problem is; he will have a more financially rewarding lifestyle and leave you in the dirt with every penny you had gone with. He is a wanted man here in the United States, and he has been just one step in front of the law that is and has been investigating him, and looking for him. If you know were he is, please turn him in so that others will not invest their hard earned life savings of thousands and thousands of dollars into his schemes.

Dear Mr. Kinity,

I was to meet Dr. Mwangi soon but after reading your article, I am hesitant to do so. Before I make my final decision, I would be grateful if you could provide more information on the case.

1. Do you have a case number or gallery number?

2. Do you know the county and city where the arrest warrant was issued? Thank you for your assistance in this issue.

Regards, Alex K
