UDA Secretary-General Cleophas Malala has linked former President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to the controversial Ksh 17 billion oil deal.
Malala posed to ask why the two leaders questioned the government when the oil linked to businesswoman Ann Njeri was mentioned suggesting that they had a hand in it as they have interest in the industry.
He termed the allegations as propaganda as he challenged the businesswoman to prove how she earned Ksh 17 billion to import the oil.
- Businesswoman Ann Njeri to appear before Energy committee
- There was no G-to-G, PM Raila Odinga calls out gov’t oil deal
- KPA breaks silence over controversial 17B oil import
“Hiyo yote ni propaganda ya kujaribu kuharibia serikali yetu jina. Swali tunafaa kuuliza Njeri, biashara yake ya Kenya iko wapi yenye alifanya na akatengeneza Ksh.17 billion?.
Huyo mama ata kiosk hana na ako na Ksh.17 billion? Na mnaona vile hii mambo imetokea ndio Raila anaanza kuongea mambo ya mafuta. Uhuru Kenyatta pia ameamka.” he said
Cleophas Malala continued by saying that the alleged money was stolen by the former President during his last term in office as that they pilling pressure on the President to let their cargo into the country.
“Wakati tulienda kura mliskia kuna Ksh.16.9 billion ilipotea. Hiyo pesa walitoa kwa madola wakapeleka kwa makampuni zao kule nje. Sasa wameenda wakachukua pesa kule nje wakanunua mafuta ikuje kwa njia ya Njeri ndio hiyo pesa irudi hapa Kenya.
We already know your interests in that scandal. Wameanza kutisha rais ndiyo rais akubali mafuta yao iingie, hiyo mafuta ikiingia wagawane pesa zao zile ambazo walikuwa wamepora Kenya. Uhuru and Raila must declare their interests in this fuel scandal.” he said
The statement is however contrary to that issued by Energy CS Davis Chirchir who claimed that the shipment was made by Galana and was under the G-to-G agreement.
