Duale Tells Officials Roped In Eurobond Saga Not To Sue Raila Odinga


Following the threats from top officials to march Raila Odinga to court for maliciously accusing them of stealing Eurobond fund, Aden Duale has informed those involved not to waste their time trying to grant CORD leader Raila the fame he seeks.

The leader of National Assembly Majority, Aden Duale has issued a cautionary advice to the eight State officers who were accused of being behind the missing Sh87.7 billion Eurobond proceeds not to spend their time like water by suing CORD leader Raila Odinga to court.

According to Mr Duale, charging the CORD leader would only earn him the political benefit he hungers for. He urged the officers Raila described as “persons of interests” in the ongoing Eurobond saga not to play into his politics of pretending to be fighting for the interest of the people whereas he only seeks to extract some political gains from it .

Jubilee MPs led by Senate Majority Leader Kindiki Kithure on Friday advised top Treasury and Central Bank of Kenya officials to take the CORD leader to court for accusing them of tampering with Eurobond fund.

Duale while issuing a statement about the Raila’s Eurobond list following his return from the International Criminal Court at The Hague where he had accompanied Deputy President William Ruto, said the ex-Prime Minister is only engaging the country in “false allegations.

Quoting him:

I want tell (Mohammed) Nyaoga and all those who were named by Raila not to sue him. He knows those are false allegations”.

Duale added that Raila only spurred for court case  in order to get his supporters come to the court and make him unnecessarily important.

Aden Duale stated:

“CORD leader had lost his strongholds to the Jubilee coalition and is now engaging in populist politics to regain relevance ahead of next year’s General Election.  2017 contest will be between those promoting transformative agenda and individuals engaging in rhetorics”.

Raila on Thursday asked Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, Permanent Secretary Kamau Thuge and Accountant General Benard Ndung’u to step down from their offices on their own for the role in the Eurobond saga. He accused all of them of deceiving tax payers and the general public. He further mentioned that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua was also involved in the alleged missing money.
