Police in Kisumu on Tuesday arrested a man accused of making fake money at the Nubian estate after his son set him up.
The man, Edwin Dimba, was arrested by the quick response team of the administration police wing.
Police also confiscated a machine believed to be used to print the money.
The son had accused the suspect of neglecting his family despite making “a lot of money” from the business.
He was frog-marched in the presence of his family, friends and neighbours during the Tuesday evening raid.
According to the son, Mr Dimba who has been in the business for close to 10 years, has been arrested on several occasions but is always released by “close business associates”.
The son said he was forced to join the boda boda business after completing his secondary school education last year to support his family.

His mother lost her job at Milimani Hospital, he added.
“My father has continued to con his unsuspecting clients who come calling at our house in Nubian Estate that he can manufacture money,” the son said.
“I have a sister in Form Three and another sibling in nursery whom am forced to cater for their school fee despite my meager pay. I use someone’s motorbike which I hire for Sh300 daily,” he added.
