On Saturday, April 27, in the United Arab Emirates, President Uhuru Kenyatta reportedly met with the
Dubai ruler who raised concerns about problems he was having with his gold consignment that was to be airlifted through Nairobi.
During the meeting, the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is reported to have produced an audio recording that was replayed to the President purportedly in a conversation between the Royal family’s representative and a Kenyan contact.
The recording is believed to be the same one that leaked online at the weekend, and which prompted a statement from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji directing the police to investigate the audio clip titled “Wetang’ula exposed in fake gold scam,” apparently referring to Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula .
Officials aware of the meeting in Dubai say also present was Opposition leader Raila Odinga, who is also the African Union’s High Representative for Infrastructural Development. ‘
