Raila promises to name Eurobond thieves in 3 days

10 January 2016, 16:55 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has promised to name the Eurobond thieves in three days time if the Director of Public Prosecutions does not.

Reacting Sunday to the revelation by DPP Keriako Tobiko that he would close the Eurobond files, Raila called Tobiko's reaction a disappointment and insisted that he state the real truth about the Eurobond saga.

Raila stated that Tobiko knew those behind the theft of what he called KES 110 billion of wastage and that Tobiko should reveal their identities.

" I have given you three days to mention those thieves behind Eurobond graft and if you don't, I will name them," said Raila.

"The Eurobond loan has made the currency fall by allowing the dollar to go up from KES 82 to KES 100 in a short period of time," he added.

"If the money could have been channeled to Central Bank, the foreign exchange could have reduced instead of increasing," he continued.

Raila said that he wa aware that the government is planing to get another loan without explaining to Kenyans what the previous loan has done but that when he brings it up, he is demonized.

" When I expose corruption scandals in the government to save the public money, other people start talking ill of me," he said.

He accused Deputy President William Ruto of using public money to handle his business.

" The money Deputy President is walking with in sacks, dishing left right and center should be directed to other meaningful issues like paying teachers," Raila added.

The DPP said Friday that the Eurobond funds were not touched in any manner that suggested they were misused following investigations by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC.
