Why Raila has refused to meet MPs

21 January 2016, 14:09 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga will not attend a Parliamentary summon to explain the Eurobond saga. But why?

The CORD leader had been asked by the Parliamentary Committee on Accounts the PAC to appear before it to explain his knowledge of the Eurobond saga.

He has however turned down the invite.

Raila says that until the Auditor General’s 2014/15 report is presented to the PAC, he will not appear before the committee.

But why? Here are some reasons from a source at the CORD leader's secretariat.

First, Raila knows that if he appears before the Committee without the Auditor's General report, he will have no basis fir arguing out his case on the Eurobond.

The Auditor General was the first to flag what he termed as transactions which were unscrupulous. Without it, he would have nothing to say on the matter.

Secondly, by agreeing to appear before the Committee, the CORD leader will essentially be putting himself on the firing line and will need to leave there with his head held high. He cannot go there without the tools to argue out his reasons for the Eurobond outburst.

Lastly, Raila has already stated that he derived his theories of the misuse of the KES 400 billion bond from government reports and materials. What will MPs want to know from him? What else will they want to know?

" Raila is not heading there to be blown up by MPs. He is heading there to argue with facts and unless the Auditor General's report is enacted by the PAC, he will not," the source added.

The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision recently stated that there was no wrongdoing in the Eurobond saga after holding investigations.
