Bank linked to President Kenyatta christened 'Cocaine Bank of Africa'

19 August 2016, 14:09

Nairobi - A bank that has ties with President Uhuru Kenyatta is under fire for guaranteeing a cocaine trafficker.

Commercial Bank of Africa is willing to guarantee Jack Wolf who is in custody for trafficking 99.7kg of cocaine worth KES 598 million, The Star reports.

Wolf, 31, is facing a potential life sentence after police in Mombasa seized the drugs in a sugar consignment ordered by British firm ED&F Man on July 29.

Nairobi's High Court had agreed to free Wolf on condition of posting a bond of KES 70 million shillings with two Kenyan sureties, and surrendering his passport.

On Thursday, a representative from CBA appeared in court where she said the bank would guarantee the suspect.

Kenyans have strongly condemned the bank, christening it the ‘cocaine bank of Africa’.

Here are some of the tweets posted in response to this development:
