Caller warns of disastrous consequences adding new twist to the Sh400 Million fake gold scandal
In the recording, a voice that resembles Wetangula’s is heard attempting to calm down a foreigner reportedly working for the Saudi Prince by using the names of President Kenyatta, Opposition leader Raila Odinga and interior CS Fred Matiang’i.
“Raila met with head of State on this matter (controversial gold) and explained to him and the head of state has called the minister (Matiang’i) “says the voice that sounds more like Wetangula’s.
He goes ahead and confirms that Raila who has met the head of state will communicate when the consignment will be picked.
The Arab is heard complaining over five-months delay in delivering the gold warning that any undesired move would mean a disaster for everyone to which the man believed to be Wetangula responds reassuring him that everything is going to be positive and done.
“Believe me any movement (on this gold) will be a disaster for all of you and myself included” warns the Arab operative.
“There will be none whatsoever my brother, take my word my brother. It’s only going to be positive and it’s going to be resolved and done.” Goes the response.
The man goes ahead stating that Moses has all the papers and warns that patience is running out even as a voice that closely resembles Wetangula’s pleads for patience, saying that anger will not help.
The angry Arab fixer is heard warning Moses against making others involved in the dealings angrier and advises him to come clean if he cannot deliver on his end of the bargain.

Kanze Dena on Uhuru being named in the fake gold scandal
Contacted on the recording which alleges the involvement of Presiden6 Kenyatta, State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena told the The Standard that she wasn't aware of such reports.
“I have not heard it, I have not seen it. So I cannot comment on it,” stated Miss Dena.
Philip Etale, an ODM party official and a close confidant to Odinga also denied that the former premier was contacted in regard to the fake gold scam.
At the center of controversy is Sh400Million gold consignment that was reportedly ordered by a Saudi Prince but which was never delivered, triggering a fallout and a scandal that is threatening to sink the high and mighty in both political as well as business circles.
The scandal has so far seen several arrested including flamboyant businessman Jared Otieno and Zaheer Merhali Jhanda.
Reports indicate that Wetangula who is listed as a person of interest in the scandal will appear for questioning at the DCI offices in relation to his alleged involvement in the fake-gold scandal.
