The Internet came under fire on Tuesday morning when Kenyans On Twitter (KOT) spotted Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula in Hong Kong China amidst probe into the fake gold scandal in which the Ford Kenya party leader has been greatly linked.
Wetangula is in China alongside nominated senator Isaac Mwaura representing the Senate at the International Anti Corruption Conference in Hong Kong.

Despite the fact that the lawmaker is facing a serious crime allegation, the senate still appointed him to represent them at an International function.
The move has irked Kenyans, with many now accusing the Country of turning into a joke in serious matters.
