Gold and other scams will make Kenya lose its glitter
SEE ALSO: DCI seeks dead man over Itare dam scamBut sadly, even before the truth about the gold scam is fully dug out, allegations of a new Sh40 billion fake weapons procurement scandal are swirling around. Already, the victims – Polish nationals – are said to have been swindled Sh11.5 million. Once again, it will take time for Kenyans to know the finer details of this scam. But one thing is certain, these claims/scams are not doing us any good. Many foreign investors prefer Kenya to most neighbouring countries. Of course, corruption has denied us potential investors. The sad reality is that these new high-level fraud is likely to make matters worse for Kenya. In fact, if these multi-million shilling scams targeting westerners are real, Kenya could make the infamous Nigeria ‘419’ scamming look like child’s play. That’s why we should be afraid; very afraid. Authorities must thoroughly investigate the emerging crime to not only save foreign nationals their hard-earned money, but also Kenya’s good name.
