The Pandora Papers expose which showed that the Kenyatta family is operating up to a sum of ksh 3 billion in offshore accounts has been the talk in town since yesterday 3rd August. According to the report, the Kenyan first family has several businesses abroad and controls billions of money which was not confirmed if it was public money.
The first family has been ranked the wealthiest in Kenya severally and has been put under scrutiny on how the wealth multiplied so fast.
However, after the expose, the president Uhuru allied legislators famously called the kieleweke group have come to the defense of the president saying it is not unconstitutional for one to have foreign accounts.
