Nairobi - CORD leaders will report the government to President Barrack Obama when they meet them during his visit to the country on Friday.
Top of their agenda in the meeting will be the corruption allegations levelled against high-ranked individuals in the government and its expenditure of resources.
Senate minority leader, Moses Wetang’ula said the Opposition leaders will tell President Obama that money received in aid from foreign countries is divided amongst two individuals only.
“We have a clear agenda that we will discuss with President Obama about corruption that is killing the country. We will tell him that the money got from foreign aid is being used by President Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto on their corrupt deals,” said Wetang’ula.

He spoke Friday at Kegoye village during the requiem mass for John Vitisia, brother to Kenya’s Ambassador to Burundi, Ken Vitisia.
Wetang’ula noted that the same razor that President Uhuru used on corrupt Cabinet Secretaries cannot be said to be blunt on Devolution CS, Ann Waiguru.
“Waiguru has been named in many scandals in her ministry already and we want the President to take action against her. When I was named in a scandal involving Tokyo Embassy, I stepped down for six months to pave way for investigation. And so Waiguru should follow suit and allow independent bodies to investigate her while out of office,” said Wetang’ula.
The Bungoma senator accused the national government of plundering over 91 percent of the national budget presented by the Treasury, while only allowing County governments to utilise the remaining amount.
