Raila Odinga has come to the rescue of under-fire Auditor General Edward Ouko over alleged procurement malpractices.

 

Cord Leader Raila Odinga has come to the rescue of under-fire Auditor General Edward Ouko over alleged procurement malpractices.

The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) recently concluded investigations involving Ouko who is alleged to have irregularly procured an audit vault software whose price had been inflated from Sh18 million to Sh100 million.

During a campaign rally in Kisii, Raila said the allegations facing the Auditor General  have been “cooked” by the government in an attempt to intimidate Ouko and mask massive corruption dealings.

“If they try and touch Ouko, we will mobilise all Kenyans and go to the streets, just like it was done in Brazil and ensure all the thieves go home,” Raila said.

Raila said that Ouko was the one who has been unearthing massive corruption dealings in government hence the latest allegations.

Ouko was last week criticised by President Uhuru Kenyatta during the Governance Summit at State House on matters corruption.

Uhuru wondered why Ouko wanted to travel to the United States to conduct investigations over the whereabouts of the controversial Eurobond funds.

Mr Ouko earlier in May, said his office had secured appointments with top US and UK financial institutions as part of an ongoing audit of the $2 billion transaction.
