Reynold defrauded a Microsoft East Africa Systems employee with 5 million shillings between August and October 2018 by falsely pretending to invest the money at an online forex trade that would earn the victim good monthly returns.


DCI’s Serious Crimes Unit (SCU) is appealing for information on the whereabouts of one Reynold Nelson Shikhule, a serial fraudster whose criminal undertakings have set dozens of his victims into untold economic suffering.

The Unit’s attention was drawn to numerous individual appeals by victims on social media networks, requesting their followers who may be privy to Reynold’s whereabouts to inform them, with some pledging monetary rewards for the information. But the crafty felon that Reynold Nelson Shikhule is, is not new to corridors of justice.

He has mastered his way through the criminal justice system, whenever he is arraigned in court and is released on bond or cash bail for fraud-related cases.

Reynold, born in Nakuru and raised in Kakamega’s Kisa Central location, Mushiangubu sub-location, remains wanted by detectives in Gigiri, Parklands & the Serious Crimes Unit (among other DCI offices) where he has pending cases.

In one of the felonies with which he is charged by SCU, Reynold defrauded a Microsoft East Africa Systems employee with 5 million shillings between August and October 2018 by falsely pretending to invest the money at an online forex trade that would earn the victim good monthly returns.

The accused had thereafter disappeared in thin air, leaving behind scanty marks of his trace until June 2019 when SCU detectives nabbed and charged him before a Kiambu court for Obtaining Money by False Pretenses. He was released on a 1-million-shilling bond or a 500,000-shilling cash bail.

After several hearings, the suspect made an application to settle the matter outside the court by returning the victim’s money but went ahead to issue two bad cheques to the victim in February 2020.

He absconded court in all the subsequent hearings, which saw a warrant of arrest issued against him by the Chief Magistrate Court Kiambu. Recently, a compilation of fraud cases that signaled his involvement was done by the SCU, triggering his profiling which established that his face, con trick & fraudulence was being run on various social media sites. Little has been left known of his trace.
