VIDEO: I stand with Raila on Eurobond – Sonko
Jubilee MPs should not condemn and demonise Cord leader Raila Odinga over his stand on the Eurobond issue, Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has said.
“On this Eurobond we stand with Kenyans on knowing how the fund was spent. Because of this we must all put our differences and unearth the truth because nobody is above the law,”Sonko said.
“I was mentioned in a dossier some time back but my Jubilee colleagues did not stand in solidarity with me. They also ignored the fact that Waiguru was fired. It’s only fair that we stand with Kenyans.”
In a press briefing on Wednesday, the senator asked Raila to produce the dossier he has explaining how the Eurobond fund was spent to help Kenyans understand the issue.
“I call on Cord leader to record the statement at EACC but if he cannot, then he can pass it to me and I will table it to the Senate when the house resumes.”
He criticised Jubilee’s move asking senators to break from recess to discuss the Eurobond saga, adding as Deputy majority leader of the Senate, his stand on the issue should not be seen as betrayal to the government.
He tok issue with Jubilee MPs who threatened to sue Raila “should he give the EACC false information regarding the Sh250 million Eurobond money”.
“We support President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto’s government but again Opposition leaders have a right to get answers from the government and its only fair they are given the opportunity.
