The High Court has ordered that the Ksh.102 million given to Felista Nyamathira Njoroge by her Belgian boyfriend be returned to the state.

In her judgement, Judge Esther Maina determined that the funds stored in Ms Nyamathira's two bank accounts were the proceeds of crime. 

She claimed that the source of the money from millionaire Marc De Mesel had not been explained and that the crypto celebrity had failed to demonstrate how he obtained it.

The court granted the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) permission to freeze the mystery Ksh.102 million wired to the university student in August in November 2021.
