There came a time when business was so good in Congo as gold became abundant and had to be exported to other countries via some crude way.In the process the gold caught up stuck in people's hands and was reported to be lost or stolen.The Kenyan government was blamed for the loss of the gold and this led to chaos in the country.The police force tried to arrest the suspected robbers but to no avail.Recently improvements have been reported as three people have been arrested leading to the allegations.This is a great step in the Kenyan forces.Jean Claude Mundeke Kambamba aka General, Ruphin Kazadi Elumba and Jean Claude Kanza Dyansangu, were arrested around 1am on Wednesday in Kawangware and police accuse them of being part of a group linked to the smuggling of 2.5 tonnes of gold with an estimated value of Sh8 billion or US $113 million, allegedly brought into the country from Democratic Republic of Congo.Senior Assistant Commissioner Joseph Kiptarus from Kenya Revenue Authority was given the task of establishing how gold from DRC is smuggled through Kenya to overseas markets, only to be shot dead in February by unknown people while carrying out investigations.

Congo’s Ministry of Mines estimates that 80 per cent of the country’s gold exports are smuggled. Congo has been trying to cut links between mineral smuggling and armed groups in the east of the country.
