President Kenyatta, in a statement sent by State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena, said his attention has been drawn to comments surrounding the Pandora Papers by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalism (ICIJ).
He added that all those claims will be delt with when he will be back in the country from the state visit in Americas. “…these reports will go a long way in enhancing the financial transparency and openness that we require in Kenya and around the globe. The movement of illicit funds, proceeds of crime and corruption thrive in an environment of secrecy and darkness,” he stated.
It was a sensitive leak especially when directly involves the head of state and the family as a whole.“According to the ICIJ, Mrs Kenyatta and her daughters were advised by experienced international wealth experts from the Swiss bank Union Bancaire Privée (UBP), which recruited Alcogal, a Panamanian law firm specialising in setting up and administering offshore companies,” wrote the BBC.
They also revealed that in 2003 it helped the president's bro Muhoho to set up a company in Panama.
