A letter dated August 27 purported that 11 Kenyans including top leaders are wanted by Interpol for questioning following a confession by the Akashas that put them on spot in the drug case taking place in the United States.
“We hereby give notice that the following persons are wanted in one regard or the other (as specified below) in relation to affidavits and confessions made by Baktash Akasha, Ibrahim Akasha and Vijayghiri Goswami…in the course of their criminal conduct,” read a section of the letter.
The letter indicates that Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo Kenya Revenue Authority officials, former MP Harun Mwau, judicial officials among others are also wanted for questioning.
Kabogo who was among the first leaders to respond to the allegations in the letter, accused his haters of trying to destroy his reputation. He said that the letter was not genuine.
“The spreaders of this letter are devils, let them be defeated. I wonder why some people’s character relates to those of pigs?” he questioned.
