Raila Odinga is not interested in the “facts, information, data and documents concerning” the Sh250 billion Eurobond. Crude politics is undermining important public institutions. Raila craves confrontation, farce and crass spectacle, which he obsessively stages to garner attention,”
State House Director Eric Ng’eno said in a statement on Thursday.
This comes after Raila insisted to meet CBK Governor Njoroge to discuss the Sh140 billion Eurobond money which he alleges was missing and mismanaged but Njoroge rejected his invitation saying he had nothing to discuss.
Earlier today, CORD scoffed at CBK for turning down its request for a meeting on the saga and officially declared the Eurobond money stolen.
Raila and co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula said the government has been shifting its narrative on the cash, in a clear indication that it cannot be accounted for.
“Until the government proves otherwise, we maintain the Eurobond money was raised abroad and stolen abroad,” Kalonzo told a joint press conference on Thursday.
The three leaders said the move was unconstitutional and promised to write to CBK chairman Mohammed Nyaoga for an explanation on how the decision was reached.
Persons of interest in regard to the missing money included Treasury CS Henry Rotich, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, Treasury PS Kamau Thugge and former CBK Governor Njuguna Ndung’u.
Others in the list he issued at Serena Hotel in Nairobi were Central Bank chairman Jairus Nyaoga and Accountant General Bernard Ndung’u. They all denied involvement.
