Victoria Bank CEO Yogesh Pattni has come under social media pressure again to clarify matters pertaining to money laundering, fraud and corruption scandals the bank is being linked to.
This is not the first time the bank is coming social media attack as Kenyans have been asking for the CEO and his father’s Kanji Damji Pattni’s arrest over corruption and money laundering related charges.
Further reports have also indicated that the banking outfit is experiencing a bank run as people are trying to distance themselves from the scandalous duo.
As revealed by this site, Victoria Commercial Bank was opened with Goldenberg scandal monies as Kanji Damji Pattni was highly linked to the saga as per the Goldenberg reports. Mr Kanji Damji Pattni is a cousin to Goldenberg scandal mastermind Kamshi Pattni and was the same individual that used to bribe authorities to open Kamlesh’s companies.
The Money laundering scandals at the bank are so serious that they run Chopri, a parallel bank in Indian Bank. The husband and wife who are top-notch criminals have perfected the art of mobilizing for funds from people. They usually take cash and invest in properties in Dubai, and across Africa.
According to insiders at the middle-sized commercial bank which has its offices in Upper Hill in Nairobi, the Asian managers have no respect for Africans, whom they dismiss as good for nothing.
The hiring is also skewed in favour of the Asians, who form the bulk of the employees.
However, it is dominated by Asians in the board of directors and senior management staff at the helm.
The bank’s board chair is an Asian Ketaki Sheth. She has been with the bank as a director since 2002.
The bank’s chief executive, Yogesh Pattni, also an Asian, sits on the board alongside non-executive directors Sylvano Kola (African) and Mahesh Acharya. Kola is the only African on the board.
