  According to State prosecutor, Edwin Okello, Alex has been working with an international network and is involved in many cases of stealing money from several state bodies.

 "It is a case of remote control hacking where the suspects operate smoothly with their machines and the next minute you realize you have no money in your account," said Okello.

 "The information we have is just a tip of the iceberg. the racket is big and involves people outside the country."

 The Kenyan government says that the suspect operates with other members of the group who are from the United States and other countries, of which some of them are police officers and civil servants.
