Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula’s name has been mentioned in the latest Sh400 million gold scam deal.

This comes after detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) arrested 15 suspects linked to a fake gold syndicate operating in the country.

The operation was triggered by a complaint by members of Dubai royal family said to have been defrauded close to Sh400 million by the gang, triggering a probe that has roped in Wetangula.

The suspects were nabbed in a rented stand-alone house on Kaputei road in Valley Arcade, Nairobi, where fake gold was also discovered.
