Reiner Hans Hermann Kreplin claimed Mercy Adhiambo Achieng took the money from the villa they shared together and has been receiving threatening messages from anonymous people since her disappearance.
Kreplin said he was forced to abandon his house after the incident and has since been moving from one town to another fearing that his former lover could be trailing him with a gang.
The investor said he had just returned to Kenya with a huge amount of money to buy a second villa at Harbour Key cottages which were to bear the names of the two, only for Achieng to take part of the cash and disappear.
Apart from buying the villa, Kreplin said he had plans to invest in a multi-million irrigation project and a recycling plant in Ganze Constituency, Kilifi County, both at a cost of $50,000
‘’I reported the matter to Malindi police station after she went missing. We went with the police to my cottage only to find the suitcase broken into and $50,000 missing,’’ he said.
Kreplin said that the police said they would pursue the missing fiancee with a view to prosecuting her for a criminal offense but they have not been successful in tracking her down.
Malindi police said they are aware of the report of the theft but have not been informed of the alleged death threats.
Malindi Deputy Sub-county Commander Simon Muli, who was with the newly-deployed Sub County Police commander John Kemboi, said he knew about the missing woman.
Speaking in his office, Kemboi said he would follow up on the matter but advised Kreplin to report to any police station for the Directorate of Criminal Investigations sleuths (DCI) to track down the woman.
