The leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Raila Odinga has weighed in on the Pandora Papers which link the Kenyatta family to a Sh3 billion secret account.
The account which holds what is allegedly proceeds of corruption was exposed by an international group of investigative jourbalists.
The ODM leader who is also the AU High Representative for Infrasructue has called for investigations into the expose.
Raila maintained there is nothing wrong with Kenyans operating bank accounts away from home. But he emphasized that there is a need for public servants to make public such accounts.
“I would think there is nothing wrong with having an offshore account if you can explain how you opened it,” Raila told a vernacular station, as reported by Kenyans.co.ke
“I don’t have such accounts but they shouldn’t be a way of hiding corruption money.”
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) boss also said he was waiting for President Kenyatta to divulge more information on the Pandora Papers claim.
The President, who is on an official tour of Ethiopia and the USA, has promised to explain the Pandora Papers in detail.
