NASA Leader Raila Odinga Discloses That Jubilee Leaders Received Sh130 Billion in Bribes from the SGR Project

  • Officials in President Uhuru Kenyatta's government received bribes amounting to Sh130 Billion in the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway, National Super Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga has now claimed.

    Odinga was speaking at a campaign rally in Narok where he declared that "the cost of the SGR was inflated to benefit a few individuals in Jubilee who are working with graft cartels at the expense of Kenyans."

    He, however, could not explain further on the alleged Sh130 Billion bribery.

    The Opposition chief took credit for the project that the Jubilee administration has on numerous occasions cited as their flagship project.

    "SGR is our baby. We started it with President Kibaki, but Jubilee hijacked it and inflated the price to benefit from it corruptly," he stated.

    More money was pumped into the SGR project than was initially planned, raising eyebrows that corrupt officials within the Jubilee administration may have hiked the cost to loot public funds.

    The cost of the controversial project caused a showdown, with Mombasa governor Hassan Joho earlier on vowing to storm the SGR launch to expose how public funds were squandered. Joho sensationally claiming that the Jubilee administration “inflated the cost of the SGR by Sh100 billion to benefit cartels”.

    At the same rally, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka urged Deputy President William Ruto to come clean on why he fell out with Billionaire businessman Jimmy Wanjigi who is currently a NASA supporter and financier.

    The businessman was a close ally to the DP with Kalonzo disclosing that Wanjigi accompanied Ruto when the DP visited Musyoka at his home to seek former Vice President's support in 2013.
