Raila defends Uhuru on Pandora papers.

"sina kitu nje" Are the words from ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Its a few days since the International Consortium of Investigate Journalists (ICIJ) exposed how the Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta and his family have been accumulating wealth through their offshore companies. ICIJ has been exposing hidden wealth, tax avoidance, money laundering by world leaders and other public officials.

ODM party leader Raila Odinga came up strongly to defend the president by saying it's acceptable to have offshore accounts for as long as the owners can explain how they opened them. Raila further insisted that the focus should not be on the accounts but rather on how the money was acquired.

The opposition leader Raila also defended himself saying "sina kitu nje" meaning he doesn't have any money out of Kenya and that all his money is banked in Kenya.

Pandora papers will help unveil darkness for all our leaders.
