BABA RESISTS 25B BRIBE BY JUBILEE
Mr Odinga claimed he had been a victim of bribery and that he had been offered up to Sh25 billion by some individuals he did not name to have him retire from politics.
He added that he had rejected the overtures the same way Jesus Christ did when he was tempted by the devil. “Jubilee Party is watching our every step. They want to know Raila’s every move and I am sure they are listening to what I am saying here,” Mr Odinga told the legislators.
The Nasa leader claimed that people linked to Jubilee had offered him a huge financial payout, which he said amounted to bribery, besides the offer of being engaged as Kenya’s ambassador-at-large with elaborate international duties.
“Somebody came to me with Sh3 billion so that I go into retirement. He later increased the figure to Sh5 billion, later Sh10 billion and finally to Sh25 billion. But I kicked the person out the way Jesus mocked the devil with his temptation,” he said, adding that similar attempts had been made on Mr Mudavadi.
Mr Odinga said: “The ultimate aim of all these schemes is to make Kenya a one-party state. They will tell you Kenya does not need multipartism.”
