A photo has appeared online of Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula in Hong Kong attending the International Anti-corruption Conference even as he is being adversely mentioned in the fake gold scam.
Nominated MP Isaac Mwaura shared a number of photos of the him and Wetangula all smiles in Hong Kong never mind his mentions in involvement in the gold scam.
He caption the four almost similar photos: “With Sen Moses Wetangula representing the Senate ahead of the International Anti corruption conference in Hong Kong China.
We paid a courtesy call at the Faculty of Law of University of Hong Kong where Prof Yash Pal Ghai taught for 10 years.”
George Kinoti, the Director of Criminal Investigations has said his team is probing a leaked phone conversation alleged to be between Wetangula and Dubai royal family over the fake gold scandal.
An audio shared widely on social media has a voice believed to be that of Senator Wetangula and he is heard being in a heated conversation with the “client” presumed to be from United Arab Emirates (UAE), demanding to know the status of what is to be believed as gold.
Wetangula has kept mum about the scandal and has not made any comment.
“My attention has been drawn to an audio clip making the rounds on social media, in which an apparent telephone conversation between two speakers, allegations are made suggesting that certain information had been conveyed or relayed to HE the President (Uhuru Kenyatta), former Prime Minister (Raila Odinga) and CS (Fred) Matiangi, and that a discussion had been held between the eminent personalities, ” Haji said in the statement.
DCI told Nation that Mr Wetangula is a person of interest and has been lined up to be questioned by detectives.
“He is a person of interest, and we shall be interrogating him and all others mentioned to determine their degree of involvement,” Mr Kinoti told Nation.
The irony of a politician mentioned adversely in a scandal attending an anti-corruption conference abroad did not escape Kenyans online.
James Wathika Njoki noted: “Sarcasm of a high caliber,with senator Wetangula attending what no wonder corruption won’t end in Kenya.”
