"We know there is some KES 5 billion which is part of the NYS and Eurobond loot that has been hidden in some secret foreign account and will be used by Jubilee to buy victory in the 2017 polls," said Njogu.

He added: "The money is resting in a foreign bank under the name of a senior official in government,"

Njogu accused the government of giving its officials the green-light to loot the country.

"The Jubilee government cannot win the war on corruption because it has given its officials the authority to steal openly because no one is ready to punish them," he said.
