Kenyans charged with imitating president to con businessmen

A Kenyan court charged seven men on Wednesday for impersonating President Uhuru Kenyatta and swindling a prominent businessman out of 10 million shillings ($100,000) in yet another high-profile corruption case. The suspects called tyre firm Sameer Africa boss Naushad Merali and his finance director Akif Butt pretending to be the president and asking to sell them land, court documents showed. One of the suspected fraudsters impersonated Kenyatta's voice, while the others arrived in fancy vehicles and suits to collect the money, police said.
