Raila Odinga, the leader of the ODM, now says that having an offshore account is acceptable as long as parties can explain how they opened such accounts.
Raila said in an interview with Chamgei FM that while he does not have any foreign accounts, it is fine for Kenyans who do provided they can account for the money in the accounts.
At the same time, the ODM leader said focus should not be on the accounts but on how the money in the account was acquired.
“Hii ni mambo ya Pandoras box. Sioni kama kuna shida kuwa na account kule nje bora unaweza kusema jinsi ulifungua account. Vile uhuru amesema atasema zaidi atakapo rudi,” Raila said on Wednesday.
“Mimi sina chochote huko nje, yangu iko Kenya”
