Gulf African bank in the eye of a storm over money laundering allegations

The Weekly Vision Investigations Team

Gulf African Bank Kenya is in the eye of a storm following claims that at least Kshs 1.2million was wired to an account operated by Omar Lali, the heavily bearded lover to the late Keroche breweries heiress Tecra Muigai. Omar is the principal suspect in the suspicious death of Tecra who the mother alleges was murdered. The bank has been on US radar as a possible money laundering conduit for drugs and terror financiers.

It is not clear why such an amount was wired within two months while the two lovers gallivanted around Kenya’s coast and later visited Dar and Zanzibar in neighbouring Tanzania. Interpol, EACC, and DCI have also put the bank transactions matter on the radar, as the inquest was told of a “suspicious” amount of cash wired on both Omar Lali’s Mpesa accounts and Gulf Bank.

Multiple sources told The Weekly Vision investigators are baffled by the trail of cash that also followed what witnesses claimed were “threats” by Omar to his monied young lover, who has been dead for a year now. Omar Lali’s account at Gulf Bank is widely viewed as having been “selectively” profiled to escape the international finance scrutiny as “Islamic banks under shariah law do not allow non-Muslims to access details of their transactions.” Omar had been charged with the murder of Tecra Muigai but later set free as the DPP ordered an inquest.

The sources are further alarmed at the fact that despite Omar being a polygamist with a large family of 3 wives and several children, he has no known source of income. This has fuelled claims he could be an undercover drug “kingpin” to the coast crack cocaine merchants possibly as a peddler to the high and mighty.

An FBI source in Mombasa has severally confirmed that the drug business was alive and well and that Kenya is part of the worldwide drop off point for drugs destined to America and Europe from the East and Asia. Sources further alleged that Omar may have inducted Tecra into “drug abuse” as a good excuse to “regularly blackmail” her into sending regular pay-off to “buy his silence.”

They further claim that her alleged fatal fall on the stairs of the hotel was “more than suspicious” claiming she may have been “high on drugs” supplied by the heavily bearded husband of 3 and father of 16.

The sources have further pondered on Omar’s lifestyle saying he had a large family despite no visible means of income which they say is quite suspicious. And why would a young woman half his age regularly sends him money through phone transactions and an account at Gulf African Bank?
