What you need to know:

  • Mr Odinga said that Mr Nyaoga and Controller of Budget Agnes Odhiambo never took part in the alleged theft of Eurobond money and said he had only included them as “persons of interest” because of the public offices they hold.
  • On Friday, Mr Tobiko said investigations into the Eurobond saga were incomplete, noting that there were gaps in the report by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission submitted to him.
  • Among those listed were Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, Treasury PS Kamau Thugge and former CBK Governor Njuguna Ndung’u.

Cord leader Raila Odinga has retracted his earlier claim that Central Bank of Kenya Chairman Mohamed Nyaoga took part in the Eurobond scam even as he backed a decision by the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko to inquire further into the matter.
