The Azimio Raila Odinga, a presidential contender for the Kenya Alliance, has denied allegations that he sold the nation’s three ports to a company based in Dubai under cover of darkness.
Raila claimed that the allegations made by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and the entire Kenya Kwanza team are false through his presidential secretariat spokesperson, Makau Mutua.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga reportedly traveled to the United Arab Emirates in March of this year and signed a covert agreement to sell Mombasa, Lamu, and Kisumu ports to a Dubai-based corporation, according to Mudavadi on Wednesday.
However, Mutua claimed that Raila had denied the charges after speaking with him.
“I spoke with Raila about the situation. He has surely treated these accusations with the disdain they merit, according to Mutua.
He emphasized that the ODM leader lacks the legal authority to sign any contracts on the organization’s behalf because he is not a member of the government.
The claims, according to Mutua, are Kenya Kwanza’s most recent effort to divert attention from their impending defeat in the general elections on August 9.
According to him, “this new attempt, like many others, is unwarranted and unbecoming of a side trying everything to boost their decreasing numbers.”
