Raila's team issues new demand to Uhuru

Raila maintained that he will not recognize Uhuru's presidency.

The Opposition on Tuesday accused President Uhuru’s administration of engaging in massive corruption leading to the loss of over Sh40.2 billion in various ministries and the presidency in the last financial year.

“Ever since Jubilee fraudulently forced themselves upon the people of Kenya, cases of corruption have been on the rise. From the lost Eurobond 1 money, Ministry of Health scam, NYS theft…,” the Standard reported Tuesday.

Reports emerged on Tuesday that the office of the president and Deputy President used over Sh1 billion in confidential expenditures for the financial year under review.

“Auditor General Edward Ouko reveals that in the 2015/2016 financial year, the Presidency spent Sh1,106,009,855 in secret expenditures, slightly higher than the Sh937million and Sh685 million incurred in the previous two financial years, respectively,” the Star reported Tuesday, sparking wild reactions from Mr Odinga’s camp.

Mr Odinga is now rooting for a clear explanation regarding the funds and asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to take responsibility for what the party termed as looting in Statehouse.

Massive looting

A report by Auditor General Edward Ouko revealed that Sh40.2 billion of tax payers’ money for the Financial Year 2015/2016 could not be accounted for. The report exposed a mysterious white elephant projects that gobbled up Sh40 billion of taxpayers' money.

More intriguing is that some of the projects were never executed or have stalled yet payments were made.

The Ouko-authored report also revealed that in the 2015/2016 financial year, the Presidency's expenditure of Sh1 billion in secret expenditures, was in excess of Sh937million and Sh685 million incurred in the previous two financial years, respectively.

Mr Ouko also put CS Matiang’i led Interior Ministry on spot after it emerged that the ministry had operated secret accounts, through which over Sh8 billion has been syphoned off since 2013.
