Ukrainian left to chase court case after Sh1bn ‘gold’ vanishes in city

What you need to know:

  • Trouble started when the Uganda company failed to ship the consignment to Dubai, ostensibly because the Ukranian had not applied for a “non-criminal certificate”.
  • Bokwete introduced the Ukrainian to a Nairobi company Afrisolutions Limited run by Joseph Kimo and Zeddy Otieno , who have also been sued.

Ukrainian Kovalenko Hennadii had hoped to make billions of shillings from the export of 350 kilogrammes of gold mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Then it vanished in Nairobi while at the hands of a security company he had entrusted the gold to export to a refinery in Dubai.
