Raila refuses to meet EACC in Eurobond probe

10 December 2015, 08:19 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has refused to meet the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC over the Eurobond probe.

Raila had been asked by the EACC to appear Thursday to shed light on his allegations of misappropriation of funds meant fir the Eurobond.

The CORD leader has insisted previously that the KES 250 billion bond has been wasted.

However, the government has insisted that the allegations are false and thus the EACC has called on Raila to come forward and explain his conviction over the matter.

Through his lawyer Paul Mwangi, the CORD leader stated that at present, he does not have any reason to meet the EACC as they are mandated to deal with investigations still.

" There is nothing for Raila to add now. The EACC is still starting out its investigations and thus at the moment the meeting is superfluous and has been politely declined," Mwangi stated.

The CORD leader says that the EACC must first dig deep for clues to the funds wastage before coming out and asking him to contribute.

" He is open to helping out but not at this stage," Mwangi added.

The move will doubtless elicit rebuke from leaders in the Jubilee coalition who have in the past stated that they will sue Raila if he fails to provide evidence linking the government to the Eurobond losses.

Raila has previously stated that as much as KES 100 billion has been lost.
