Controller Of Budget Nyakang'o Leaks What She Was Forced To Do During Uhuru's Gov't Before Election

Kenya's Controller of Budget, Margaret Nyakang'o, recently testified before a public petition in the parliamentary chamber and made a shocking admission. Nyakang'o claimed that just days before the elections, she was forced to sign a 15 billion Kenyan shilling loan. She said that officials pushed her to sign the papers under duress and threatened her with repercussions if she didn't.

The charges made by Nyakang'o have generated controversy in Kenya, where many people are calling for a thorough inquiry. While some have demanded that Nyakang'o release the names of the authorities who put her under duress, the opposition party has accused the government of exploiting public monies to support its campaigns.

The Controller of Budget is in charge of monitoring government spending and making sure that tax dollars are spent as intended. The claims made by Nyakang'o raise the possibility that public monies were improperly used during the election, which might have significant ramifications for the political climate of the nation.
