Wetangula, whose supposed audio was leaked to the public two weeks ago, has grievously been implicated in the scandal.

In the undated phone conversation, Wetangula was heard assuring the representative of the ruler, whose cargo was being held by the government under Interior security ministry that all will be well.

He was also heard telling the gold scammer that the ODM party leader Raila had met President Kenyatta over the cargo, and that it would be released soon.

“Raila met with the Head of State on this matter and explained to him and the head of state has called the minister (Matiang’i). In the course of this week we will be able to finish this matter once and for all,” says Wetangula.
