Leave me out of parliamentary issues, Raila says

11 March 2015, 18:43 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says that he should be left out of parliamentary issues and corruption probes that he has nothing to do with.

The CORD leader was reacting to reports alleging that he would be summoned to parliament to shed light on corruption allegations within the Public Accounts Committee headed by Budalangi Ababu Namwamba.

It stems from Raila being in a recording taken by Namwamba regarding corruption in the house and of which the CORD leader was a part of.

The Powers and Privileges Committee had shown willingness to call in Raila Friday but the CORD leader says he should be left out of the matter altogether.

" Leave me out of parliamentary matters. I am not a part of the house and thus there is no reasoning behind me appearing there, he said Wednesday at Orange House.

He added that he has never been a part of any corruption probe before and that he was not about to start.

He also called on the probe to not just focus on the takers of bribes in parliament and also focus on the persons in the executive who handed out the bribes.

" Focus should also be on those who gave out the bribes in the executive. Let us just not focus on the givers but the takers too, he added.

Namwamba is expected to testify over alleged bribery in the PAC after an impeachment motion to have him shelved as chair failed last week.
