Donald Kipkorir, the flashy and passionate Nairobi lawyer has a story he wants to tell you about how an old friend showed up out of nowhere. Apparently Abdulrahman Imraan Juma (also known as Abd), who was indicted in America for fraud reached out through Kipkorir’s friends while they were sitting at his father’s funeral just over two weeks ago. They had not seen each other since 2003 when Donald helped him leave Kenya because he feared being caught after committing some crimes there; this time around it seems that luck is on their side with what we assume are millions lodged away by Huspuppi!
In response to one tweet from someone asking if “Abdul wanted me
“Sometimes back, Abulrahman aka Abdul asked my friend Fauz Khalid in Mombasa to introduce him to me. Abdul came to see me & wanted me to keep money from Hushpuppi,” the lawyer Tweeted “I told him I only deal with corporate clients,”
Hushpuppi’s entire life seemed to be a series of heists and frauds. From his days as an impromptu drug dealer, stealing money from the business accounts in school, all the way through college where Hushpoppi was arrested for identity theft at age 18-years old only months into university studies – it would seem that nothing ever stopped him or slowed down this man who has been described by investigators as one of Kenya’s most prolific cyber criminals.

Court documents read like a script from an episode of Narcos show that Juma posed as the facilitator and consultant for illusory bank loans. Hushpuppi played Malik, a Wells Fargo banker in New York by allegedly arranging fake transactions with Vincent to help make it seem legitimate.
The Nigerian national, whose nickname is Hushpuppi was finally captured and pleaded guilty to his crimes of falsifying school finance by impersonating bank officials with the help from co-conspirators.
According to Kristi K. Johnson, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, Abbas’ “celebrity status and ability to create contacts seeped into legitimate groups and led to multiple spin-off schemes in the United States and abroad.”
“Today’s news strikes at the heart of this global network, and hopefully serves as a warning to potential victims of this type of theft.”
According to the US, Abbas was involved in frauds that cost victims a total of Ksh.2.6 billion
