On Thursday, CORD leader, Raila Odinga, stunned the entire nation when he released names of individuals who allegedly stole Sh 140 billion that was part of the proceeds of the Eurobond.
Raila, who was surrounded by an army of financial experts and lawyers when naming the suspects, said the individuals he named were acting on behalf of senior Government officials who he did not mention.
The former PM named Treasury Cabinet Secretary, Henry Rotich, his Principal Secretary, Kamau Thugge, Head of Public Service, Joseph Kinyua, former Central Bank of Kenya Governor, Njuguna Ndungu, Central Bank of Kenya board chairman, Mohamed Nyaoga, Acting Director and Financial Markets Department boss at CBK, John K Birech, Moses Muthui, and Bernard Ndungu as the thieves of the Eurobond money.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was reportedly following Raila Odinga’s Press Conference from State House, Mombasa, where he has been camping for over 3 weeks.
Uhuru’s handlers said that implicating Kinyua, who is also his Chief of Staff, is the same as implicating the Presidency in the scandal and what the former Premier is doing is trying to rope in President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kinyua is one of Uhuru’s most trusted confidantes from his time at the helm of the Ministry of Finance and the nation is waiting to see how the President will react.
Kinyua is currently in Mombasa with the father of the nation.
