Embakasi East MP Babu Owino claims he knows the name of a client Deputy President William Ruto allegedly sold fake gold to.
In a Facebook post, Mr Owino dragged the name of the deputy president into the scandal, which is being investigated by detectives. The MP did not provide any evidence to link the DP.The fake gold saga came into the limelight after a telephone conversation between a man alleged to be Senator Wetangula and a gold merchant presumably from the UAE found its way into the public.
According to Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti, the government is still probing the genuineness of the leaked telephone conversation.
“The investigative team is tracing a forensic trail which aims to nail suspects of the gold saga within and outside the country,” said Kinoti on Sunday.
Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has also ordered the police to speed up investigations on the fake gold scandal.
