Nairobi, KENYA: Jubilee allied Members of Parliament have launched onslaught against opposition chief Raila Odinga over what they term as selective fight against corruption in the country.

Leading the legislators in a parliamentary press briefing, leader of majority Aden Duale accused Raila of applying double standards when tackling corruption, where he fails to condemn corruption tendencies in counties whose governors are allied to CORD.

Daule said that it is incorrect for Raila to keep on attacking the national government on corruption matters, by relying on interim reports of the auditor general which is a replica of Kilifi county corruption scandal.

The counties Duale pointed that are marred with corruption tendencies include Kilifi ,Mombasa ,Migori ,Siaya and Nairobi.

He accused opposition of mutual benefit from the governors allied to CORD indicating that he is ready to table evidence on the same.

Duale warned Jubilee governors whose counties are marred with corruption that their candidacy will be at stake ,insisting they might be locked out of 2017 polls’ candidacy if found guilty of corrupt tendencies insisting the government’s commitment to fight corruption.

“If you are our governor and you are involved in graft ,those counties lead by jubilee governors we are telling them they must take responsibility.”Duale said.
