Oloo: Cord is hypocritical in the fight against graft

22 February 2015, 16:27 Magdaline Mwaniki

Nakuru - The National Alliance (TNA) Secretary General Onyango Oloo has accused the opposition of being hypocritical in the fight against corruption.

Speaking in Nakuru after meeting the county's TNA members of County Assembly, Oloo accused Orange Democratic Movement  and Cord coalition of protecting its members implicated in the corruption scandal at Mumias Sugar Company.

“Members of the Cord coalition have been calling for arrest of government officials linked with corruption but still remain silent about the Mumias Sugar matter which links top leaders of the coalition to the scandal,” Oloo said.

This comes as the members of opposition called for the arrest of government officials linked to the KES 50 million “chicken” scandal.

"It is hypocritical and double standard for opposition leaders to call for prosecution of those mentioned in the Chickengate scandal but remains silent and non committal on those leaders implicated on Mumias Sugar scandal," he added.

He added that, the opposition should condemn the Mumias Sugar scandal with zeal they have applied in accusing the IEBC officers while the names of some top leaders in the coalition are linked to corruption at the sugar company.

He said farmers depend on the company for their livelihood and most of  them have pending loans and other financial dues to clear.

He called on all law enforcement bodies to investigate the matter and ensure justice is given to the hundreds of farmers.

“All the billions lost should be recovered and returned to the peasant  farmers,” said Mr Oloo.
