Does Kenya Have a Fake Gold Trade Ring?

In leaked audio, whose authenticity cannot be immediately verified, a person drops the names of President Uhuru Kenyatta, opposition leader Raila Odinga and Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, claiming they are all privy to the gold exports. The alleged involvement of politicians in the con games is believed to be part of the reason why the police have reportedly been slow to act on those at the centre of the multi-million scam.
