Nairobi - CORD leader, Raila Odinga is using the IEBC crisis to solicit and raise money from foreign donors for his 2017 presidential campaigns, a member of Parliament has said.
Bomet central MP, Ronald Tunoi said that Raila has been receiving money from foreign governments and donors to support the push for reforms in the electoral body.
Tonui said that Raila has convinced foreign donors that there is a big crisis in the country that needs funds to resolve and that is why he has resorted to street protests.

Speaking in Nakuru on Sunday, Tonui said that Raila is not genuine on the IEBC crisis and that he is not interested in finding a solution any sooner.
"The truth is that Raila has no problem with IEBC. He is just using the crisis to fund-raise for the 2017 polls. He is receiving money from foreign sponsors because he has told them that there is a big crisis in the country that needs money to solve," said Tonui.
"He is more focused on getting money for his campaigns and he would want to see this IEBC crisis dragging so he can continue receiving money," he said.
