ODM leader Raila Odinga has said that President Uhuru Kenyatta should explain the offshore accounts.
The former prime minister said he has no problem with Uhuru having offshore accounts but the president should explain.
“It’s only improper when the accounts are opened to stash money acquired through corruption. Ideally, the public needs to be told how, when and why the money is being stored in the foreign accounts,” he added.
Raila said on a local radio station, where he was being interviewed on Thursday morning. He was responding to revelations by international journalists that world leaders, including Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta, own secret accounts in foreign nations that store trillions of shillings cumulatively.
Raila said that he does not own any offshore account or company. He added that he has stored and invested all his wealth in Kenya.
“I own no offshore accounts. All my money is stored and invested here in Kenya,” Raila said.
Raila said he is not going to work with Deputy President William Ruto in the 2022 polls since Ruto has declared that he will run for Presidency.
“I am waiting for the Kalenjin community to give me someone I can work with, but I’m still the Arap Mibei you used to know,” he said.
“Whoever advised Ruto to use the word Hustler misadvised him, Hustler ‘ni mtu mkorofi, mwizi na mtu mwenye anatumia njia za mikato.”
The former Kibera MP said that corruption is killing the country.
He said that he is yet to declare my presidential bid but for now he wants to unite the country through ‘Azimio La Umoja’
