The political blog, rofinamedia, has named lawyer Cecil Miller as among Kenyan individuals facilitating the smuggling of gold and diamonds from Zimbabwe on behalf of President Robert Mugabe’s cronies.

“Enterprising Kenyans have dutifully taken ownership of a controversial consignment of blood gold from Congo belonging to Zimbabwe’s Vice-President Joyce Mujuru. She may be among the 200 banned elites profiting from Mugabe’s draconian regime, but she surely knew Kenya’s prowess to overcome any difficulty where real money is concerned,” reads the blog.

“Our blue chip lawyer (almost ECK chair) Cecil Miller came in handy, using the right connections to authenticate the gold consignment as originating from Kenya so that the Swiss company would not associate it with blood gold. This is big business for the boys and gatekeepers, and woe unto you Kenyans who are depleting wild berries for lunch and dinner.”

Meanwhile, the BBC World Service has confirmed that the smuggling of precious minerals from Zimbabwe is done with the involvement of people in Nairobi. “Vice President Joyce Mujuru of Zimbabwe has been trying to sell gold in Europe in a deal stretching from Nairobi to Zurich—the BBC has learned—in defiance of international sanctions,” says the report.

Mrs. Mujuru has allegedly been trying to fund a multimillion-dollar gold deal in Europe, the BBC has uncovered.
