The revelation that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family has billions of shillings worth of properties and liquid assets stashed abroad has sparked fresh calls for repatriation of foreign-held wealth to help grow the struggling Kenyan economy.
President Kenyatta, in an assertion delivered Monday, didn't deny responsibility for seaward records yet said the "Pandora papers and ensuing subsequent reviews will lift the subtle pretense and murkiness for those can't clarify their resources or riches."
The report contained in 12 million documents spilled to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) didn't blame the first family for association in quite a while, yet the president's political adversaries actually contend the monster sum ought to be localized and contributed locally to make work for huge number of jobless adolescents.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa, a solid pundit of the president, said the fortune held by the President's family in outside nations neglects to move trust in the security of Kenya's economy and political framework.
