Tobiko orders Eurobond files re-investigated

23 January 2016, 11:11

Nairobi - Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko has ordered that Eurobond files be reviewed, stating that the previous report by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC was shallow.

According to The Star, the DPP is not happy with the shoddy and hurried nature of the investigations by the EACC and wants the files re-done, saying that it is a major issue of public interest.

The review will be conducted by a joint team of EACC and the DCI, who will submit the files within 14 days.

In a statement Friday evening, Tobiko said there are crucial areas in the files that need clarification and additional information before his office makes a decision.

Further, The Standard reported that Tobiko wants the investigations done well to ease public fears over the matter.

He is also understood to want answers to certain key questions raised by the opposition and members of the civil society who claim that the KES 400 billion bond was misused.

“On January 8 I received from EACC the investigation file on the Eurobond allegations and my team noted crucial areas that require clarification before a definitive decision can be made,” he said.

“After holding a meeting with the two teams, we agreed that they will address these areas and provide the requested clarification.”

CORD leader Raila Odinga is of the opinion that at-least 110 of the 400 billion has been plundered by government officials.
