14 December 2015, 11:24
Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC has dropped the arrest threat against CORD leader Raila Odinga.
The Commision said Monday that it had decided to first review the information provided to its team by the CORD leader's lawyer before moving forward with any further assessment.
It also insisted that if needed in future, Raila would be needed to go to the Commission to explain his stance on the Eurobond matters.
The Commision had earlier stated that it would insist on the CORD leader going to its integrity house office after being summoned.
The CORD leader though had refused.

" The Commision will first look at the evidence provided by the respondent before taking further action," it said in a statement Monday.
Raila had dared the Commision to arrest him, stating that he had done no wrong as a citizen of Kenya and that he deserved to ask questions about the government's expenditure.
The EACC is investigating the alleged misuse of funds at Treasury over the Eurobond, which Raila has accused the executive of wasting as much as KES 140 billion.
The government has flatly refused the accusations.
