Nairobi - The Treasury has said that part of the Eurobond cash was given to various ministries, while the rest was used to repay a syndicated loan the government owed international lenders.
Speaking during a probe by EACC Saturday, Treasury CS, Henry Rotich said he has given the ministries three weeks to file their reports.
He revealed that KES 197 billion was allocated to various ministries, which the opposition has insisted has been stolen.
In a report published by Standard, the remaining KES 53 billion was used to repay the syndicated loan.
