The National Rainbow Coalition NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua has finally broken silence after the Pandora Papers expose.

The expose saw president Uhuru Kenyatta's family listed as among top families having offshore accounts.

The reports saw president Uhuru Kenyatta's family being put on the receiving end with a majority of Kenyans led by deputy president Dr William Samoei Ruto allies questioning the source of the huge finances being stashed away from the country.

In her view, Karua has come out to join those criticising the Kenyatta's over their move to store their money outside the country.

She has argued that the Kenyatta's family are undermining the economic growth of the country.

"A leader especially a third world leader who stashes money abroad knowingly undermines the economic growth of his country, " Karua reacted to the Pandora Papers expose.

Former prime minister Raila Odinga on his part has come out to defend the Kenyatta's over the expose arguing that there is nothing wrong for anyone to stash money abroad so long as it was acquired legally.

Here are reactions to Karua's remarks;

"That's the boss of MKF you're meeting this afternoon."

"You kind of supported his presidential candidacy in 2017"
