Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC has summoned Treasury CS Henry Rotich and other senior officials to explain the saga behind the controversial Eurobond expenditure.
In a statement Friday, EACC boss Walakhe Waqo said that the officials had already shown a willingness to explain the KES 250 billion saga.
This follows directions by the Public Prosecutor Keriako Tobiko to have the matter looked into for the sake of public interest.
" The Commision has issued summons into the inquest over Eurobond payments," The EACC said in a statement Friday evening.
" The response by the officers so far invited has been positive and the
commission expects that the local aspects on the investigations will
speedily be concluded,” the statement added.
The commission has also urged anyone with information on the alleged
Eurobond scandal to volunteer, so as to aid the ongoing investigations
prompted by claims by CORD leader Raila Odinga and other opposition
leaders that the money may have been misappropriated.
Rotich has however insisted that there has been no misappropriation of the funds and that the KES 100 billion Raila claims was stolen can be accounted for.
" All the funds can be accounted for with ease," Rotich said Friday.
The government has insisted that the funds have been well taken care of but the opposition says otherwise, insisting that there has been a plot to siphon the funds elsewhere.
