Raila Odinga Exposes Corruption Cases in President Uhuru's Govt That Run Into Billions

Opposition Leader Raila Odinga has today talked about the many corruption cases being recorded in President Uhuru Kenyatta's government.

The ODM leader has today echoed what President Uhuru said a while ago, that the country loses Sh2 billion every 24 hours.

He went further and revealed that what the country is losing to corruption is a third of the budget.

He noted that in a year, Kenya loses up to Sh600 billion to corruption.

Raila has revealed that his main emphasis won't be on what Sh600 billion can do for Kenyans, but his main focus is to stop the looting of the same amount

"Kenya is losing a third of its budget - the equivalent of about $6 billion or Ksh600 billion- to corruption every year.

"The country loses Ksh2 billion every day. I don’t need to emphasise what this money can do. But I can emphasise that the losses will be stopped," he said.

Raila spent part of his Wednesday touring Nairobi as he urged Kenyans to go and take votes or rather register as voters.

He said he is head into a war (election-2022), and he needs soldiers, who should have lethal weapons.

According to him, Kenyans are his soldiers and their votes are their weapons.
