Aden Duale accused Raila Odinga of receiving monthly stipends from governors adding that his bills during trips to counties were also catered for by the governors.

Duale said:

”We have evidence of how Raila has been a ghost worker in all the CORD counties for the last three years.

“I can confirm that during Raila’s recent visit to Wajir and Garissa counties, the choppers were paid for by the governors, and I have evidence to prove it.”

He further demanded that the former Prime Minister refund the millions he has received both as stipends and hotel fees.

Duale also accused Raila Odinga of being two-mouthed on matters of corruption, failing to address it when it relates to CORD officials but being very vocal on allegations against Jubilee governments.

”He has previously asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to take responsibility for corruption in the government, yet he is now asking for due process to be followed in investigating the scandal in Kilifi.”

Raila moved to defend Kilifi Governor, Amason Jeffa Kingi, over allegations of loss of funds in his county amounting to KSh 51 million.

Duale accused the Kilifi Governor of engaging in corrupt activities, pointing out that he bought a KSh 160 million house with taxpayers money instead of engaging in development activities.

“All governors, whether in Jubilee or CORD, must take responsibility for the loss of money allocated to their counties. As Jubilee, we would not allow any governor who has engaged in corruption to vie on our party ticket in the 2017 General Election.”

The Jubilee lawmakers further urged the Auditor General to launch investigations into Kilifi County Government. He also asserts that further probe would reveal that more than Ksh 1.8 billion is missing.
