Edward Ouko Cries Out, Claims His Life Is in Danger

  • During a Tuesday, September 3, interview on Citizen TV, outgoing Auditor General Edward Ouko, disclosed that his life could be in danger after completing his tenure.

    Ouko stated that there was no security arrangement after serving in office, stressing that change needed to be implemented to ensure that outgoing auditor-generals were safe even after office.

    “Anyone who had an ill motive would never have manifested it during my tenure because they know I have security but when you leave without a clear post service arrangement, it’s the most insecure time,” he divulged.

    He added that during his time in office, he had received a couple of death threats, to which he did not pay much attention to because he had security.

    “That never worried me, in fact, it worried my family more than myself. For family, they take it with a bit more seriousness,” he noted.

    Ouko was appointed as Auditor General on August 27, 2011, from which he served for eight years.

    He laments that during his tenure, several of his recommendations were never acted on.

    This, he stated, had cubbed efforts of holding to account those responsible for looting public funds.

    In his final media engagement on August 28, 2019, Ouko stated that he had not decided what his next assignment would be, noting that he needed to re-organise his personal affairs, which had suffered over time.
