The probe on the Sh400 million gold scam has now been extended to Dubai
On Monday night, officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations flew to Dubai to record a statement from the representative of the United Arab Emirates’ ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The sleuths are on a mission to quiz Ali Zandi, a representative of Al Maktoum. Zandi also represents the Zlivia Company, the gold trading company based in Dubai which claims its gold was seized at JKIA in transit from the DRC to Dubai.
Zandi has been in Kenya several times to follow up on his cargo without success.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered Inspector General Hillary Mutyiambai to investigate claims that a group of Kenyans may have conned Al Maktoum out of millions of shillings.
Leaked audio put Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula at the centre of the fake gold scam.
