Raila names 8 man list of Eurobond 'thieves'

14 January 2016, 14:17

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has named persons he says are behind the theft of the KES 400 billion Eurobond funds.

The Star reports that the CORD leader Thursday morning named a list of 8 people he says are behind the misappropriation of the bond at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi.

Raila named the officials as Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, Treasury Permanent Secretary Kamau Thugge and former Central Bank of Kenya Governor Njuguna Ndung'u.

Others in the list were Central Bank chairman Jairus Nyaoga, Benard Ndung'u, John Birech, Moses Muthui and Patrick Kamau.

The naming of the officials comes just a week after the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC released a statement saying that after thorough investigation, there was no evidence of theft of the bond.

Treasury CS Rotich has previously stated his annoyance at being linked to the theft of the bond.

Raila has released the names just a few days after The Standard reported that he had been put under pressure by political leaders to release the list, which would expose the supposed beneficiaries of the alleged theft.
