As his term as president expires in August, President Uhuru Kenyatta is anxious.
This comes after one presidential candidate pledged to hurt him if he won the election in August.
When running for president, David Waihiga of the Agano Party promised to bring back the billions Uhuru and his family have hidden abroad.
“I do not want to say that I will insist on treating Nigeria’s former President Sani Abacha in the same manner, which is to demand that he repay all the billions he took from his people. They will undoubtedly have to bring back all of that money, Waihiga stated, without intending to frighten anyone.
“I am a clergyman, and I have a perfect reputation for integrity. I will demand that all the embassies in the nation assist us in recovering the stolen funds so that we can reinvigorate our economy, he said.
Waihiga concurrently pledged to put into effect all suggestions about significant scandals in the nation, claiming there is currently no political goodwill because those involved are connected to people in authority.
“I will also seek to be given access to all investigative findings of significant scandals in this country on my second day in office. I shall be in a clean position to pursue the big fish because I know full well that neither my identity nor the names of my family members are listed in those reports.
The first family of President Uhuru garnered media attention in 2021 after the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) connected them to 13 offshore businesses with billions of shillings in assets.
The president made a commitment to shed light on the billions held by his family members in offshore accounts, but he has yet to make a thorough denial of the claim.
