Raila Odinga’s elder brother, Oburu Odinga accuses Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission EACC of targeting him because he is ODM leader’s brother. EACC has accused him of obtaining a piece of land irregularly. On Friday, the EACC repossessed Kenya Railways Corporation land allegedly allocated to Oburu Oginga irregularly. “I acquired the plot like any other Kenyan acquires a plot…” He said during a press release in his Kisumu’s Milimani home.
“This is political hogwash; they (EACC) are singling me out because I am the brother of Raila. It is not my mistake to be Raila’s brother, I did not apply to be one. Neither Raila nor me need the parcel of land.” He stated.
The East Africa Legislative Assembly MP stated that this move by EACC is just mire publicity conducted by the body and also added that the EACC should carry out thorough investigations into the matter and prosecute him in court.
“EACC should not make it a habit of rushing to the press with matters for cheap publicity. If they feel there is a mega corruption they should rush to court,” said Odinga.
