Renowned Journalist Jeff Koinange will host Miguna Miguna, the former aide-turned-foe to Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Miguna returns to Jeff Koinange Live bench today at 10.00pm to discuss ‘corruption and Okoa Kenya’ among other issues during the show which is arguably Kenya’s best political and current issues show.

Koinange, a consummate talk-show host, has fished Miguna at a time the former Prime Minister's name has been prominently dragged into corruption allegations involving Deputy President William Ruto. Blogger Dikembe Disembe claims the regime is desperate to slow down Raila.

Miguna is known to hit the former prime minister where it hurts most – reform credentials. The show is also coming at a time pro-government factotums are using social media to malign the name of the ODM leader.
Yesterday, the hashtag #RailaIsClean trended on twitter with majority of tweets ridiculing the opposition leader. This is after a local newspaper linked him to the sh 28 billion scandal involving the upgrade of Moi Teaching and Referal Hospital which DP Ruto is accused of having interfered with.
The whistle-blower, Herbert Ojwang’, claimed that the company that is to construct a new hospital after DP Ruto renegotiated the deal from initial sh. 17 billion to sh. 28 billion will rip the taxpayers of a whooping sh.11 billion meant as kickback for DP Ruto.
ODM yesterday furiously protested the dragging of Raila’s name in the scandal, accusing Jubilee of having enduring vendetta against the CORD leader.
â€œJubilee is trying to drag Raila into a scandal that he has nothing to do with. You cannot have a skunk in your house and say the smell belongs to someone else. You must own both the smell and the skunk,â€ ODM Director of Elections Junet Mohamed said.
â€œWhen Ojwang appeared before a parliamentary committee early last week, he did so to shed light on what was clearly a case of fraud involving himself, Chinese investors and the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret, and the alleged entry of Ruto into the deal which pushed everything through the roof turning it into a rip-off of tax payers,â€ Mohamed said.
