Opposition leader Raila Odinga has refused to honor summons by the anti- graft agency despite his Eurobond claims. He went ahead to dare the jubilee government to arrest him for raising concerns about increased cases of corruption in the country. This comes a few days after President Uhuru Kenyatta accused him and other members of the opposition for raising issues without evidence during this year’s Jamhuri Day celebrations. Apparently, the former prime minister does not fear landing behind bars for trying to question how public funds are used.
The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) has warned against his arrest. According to COTU, such an action is likely to cause tension in the country. A week ago, the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission requested Raila to appear before it and verify his claims. The commission also warned him that he was likely to be prosecuted for false accusations. Speaking at Serena Hotel Nairobi, Raila asked the government to spare the nation anger and instead provide its citizens’ with answers.
