Raila Odinga on Kenyans Having Offshore Accounts

ODM leader Raila Odinga has defended Kenyans having offshore accounts. According to the former prime minister, it's indeed not illegal for a Kenyan to have an offshore account if the funds held therein are legal.

"I see no problem in having offshore accounts if the funds are legal. I would like every Kenyan with an offshore account to declare it." Odinga said.

Odinga's remarks come days after the family of President Uhuru Kenyatta was named in an explosive leak of owning offshore companies worth a fortune.

President Uhuru Kenyatta responded to the leaks promising to issue a comprehensive statement regarding the leaks in the coming days that have now placed his family on the spotlight.

Raila was quick to inform the country that he doesn't own any offshore company, saying all his wealth is within the country.

LSK President Nelson Havi also defended the President saying the head of state was successful way before he became President.
