The source says the Turkish “investor” was to channel a huge chunk of the cash for an “unspecified project” in the DRC
Kenya’s interior cabinet secretary Fred Mataingi may have defended the government decision to deport Turkish ‘investor’ Harun Aydin, but there is more than meets the eye, well-placed sources within government say the Turk was a well-entrenched businessman in Kenya with active bank accounts at two banks including Equity bank.
Sources told The Weekly Vision that the Turkish businessman had used the two Nairobi banks to wire up to “Kshs 250 million” to his subsidiaries in Kampala ahead of a “business” meeting that was to be attended by Kenya’s deputy president William Ruto.
Deputy President William Ruto stood to make a “windfall” out of the deal and was stopped from boarding a plane headed to Kampala to “thwart” the operation
The source says the Turkish “investor” was to channel a huge chunk of the cash for an “unspecified project” in the DRC. Many informed sources claim the Turk was to export guns and ammunition to DRC Congo. There is no way the alleged project would have been a “fruits manufacturing” plant as claimed by the DP and his top aides.
“What was so special with this fruit factory that it needed the physical presence of DP Ruto and a host of MPs allied to him?” The source claim that Aydin who was once accused of funding terror organizations Is a “freelance gun merchant” connected to many European countries.
Members of Kenya’s intelligence community are said to have interrogated the Turk for three days, they came to the conclusion that the man was “up to no good” as he sought to “launder a huge amount of cash” using Kenyan banks and subsidiaries.
The sources divulged that Ruto stood to make a “windfall” out of the deal and was stopped from boarding a Kampala flight to “thwart” the operation. Later DP Ruto launched a scathing attack on the “unwise” decision to sink Kshs4b in the guns factory at Ruiru which President Uhuru Kenyatta commissioned recently. Many say you didn’t need to read between the lines to know what was to transpire in Kampala.
