Meet me in my office on Friday, Treasury CS Rotich tells Raila

Nairobi - Meet me in my office on Friday and present Eurobond evidence, Treasury CS Henry Rotich has told CORD leader Raila Odinga.
Rotich, in reaction to a 14 day ultimatum to produce Eurobond notes to the public from the CORD leader, stated that he was willing to see the evidence against his office over misuse of the USD 400 million cash.
Opposition chiefs have insisted on several occasions that the Eurobond money has been wasted by the government and asked that there be a probe over the matter.
Rotich though, feels that the CORD leader is just playing mind games and insists he must produce evidence.
" I invite the Right Honourable Prime Minister to my office on Friday at 10 AM where is urge him to produce evidence of Eurobond malpractice both in soft and hard copy," Rotich said in a statement Tuesday.
Raila and other CORD leaders had earlier stated that they needed to see clear evidence that the money was not misused by the government.
"The statements of CSs, principal secretaries and other officials contradict. At the very least, the government cannot account for more than Sh100 billion, that is $1 billion," Raila said.
"We wish to know, into which bank did every respective manager of the Eurobond credit the proceeds? What are the account numbers into which these credits were made?" he posed.
"The answers we are seeking on each of these institutions are clearly spelt out in the letters to each of them, but we will mention them in brief here," he said.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto have previously termed reports of misuse of the Eurobond cash as malicious and out of order.
