Kamlesh Pattni, an individual implicated in the Goldberg scandal which almost bankrupted Kenya, is now smuggling gold from Zimbabwe.
The Goldenberg scandal was a gold smuggling operation that robbed Kenya of $600 million (10% of their GDP) in the 1990 and led to the charges of corruption being made against of then president Daniel Arap Moi’s government. Pattni was acquitted of all charges after years of prosecution.
Pattni who became a self-proclaimed pastor and sometimes goes by the name Brother Paul is running a similar scheme in Zimbabwe from his base of operations in Dubai and AL Jazeera’s Investigative Unit revealed that after he left Kenya he reinvented himself in these two countries and started his operation from scratch.
Pattni launders money by turning dirty money into gold which is then exported from Zimbabwe to Dubai where Pattni owns several gold-trading companies.
