"Even If I Live With These Things, I Will Die With Them, " Nyakango Says After 15Bn Funds Expose

(Pictured, Margaret Nyakango)

Margaret Nyakango yesterday revealed that she had had a lot of soul searching, before she finally opted to release the printed WhatsApp chats with former Finance cabinet secretary Ukur Yattani. In the whatsapp message's, Ukur Yattani is captured asking for some huge amount of money without even proper documentation. The money in question was 15 billion that is reported to have been withdrawn in the latter days of the Uhuru administration. Huge amounts of money was withdrawn and their designate or whatever work it did at the end not clearly captured.

Ms Nyakango cites intimidation and threats from the then Treasury Cabinet secretary, where at one point he even threatened to link her up with President Uhuru Kenyatta who would then give her ( Ms Nyakango a call ) This however did not happen as it was only a ploy to have Nyakango give in to the withdrawal demands.

Nyakango argues that from where she sits, she is also human and when she is under threat, she has to self preserve just like she did. "Even if I live with these things, I will die with them. " Nyakango is quoted as having said before the committee. She goes on to add that nobody had ever seen those chats until that time when she displayed them before the committee. She adds that nobody knows the struggles that she goes through and that she was all alone. "I report to parliament and they are on recess, whom was I to tell? " She asks, then makes a pause.

She furthers on that her office not only gets pressure from the national government but also from the county governments who are always seeking approval's to withdraw fund's.
