Raila to explain secret Ababu talks

10 March 2015, 22:01 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga will likely appear before a parliamentary committee probing alleged corrupt deals in the National Assembly.

The parliamentary Powers and Privileges Committee announced that it will likely call upon the former Prime Minister to hear his views on alleged on-goings within  the suspended Public Accounts Committee PAC.

The summon is linked to a secret recording Budalangi MP and suspended PAC chairman Ababu Namwamba claims he has and will present to defend himself over corruption allegations.

Raila was one of the persons who were recorded by Ababu.

Committee chairman Moses Cheboi who is the Kuresoi MP said Tuesday that the Committee would call in Raila, but that he was not considered a mainstream suspect in the case.

" We will summon the former PM towards the end of the week. Likely Friday," he said.

" I would like to insist that the summon will be to listen to his side of the story in regard to something that allegedly took place in his presence.

" He is not a suspect but rather a guest of the Committee," Cheboi added.

According to sources close to the CORD leader, he is open to attending the summon, especially bearing that he has nothing to answer as regards the investigations.

" He is open to it. He is not a suspect of any kind and he does not have anything to hide, the aide that did not want to be mentioned for obvious reasons told News24.
