On Friday, Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Raila Odinga revealed those who have been financing his frequent trips.

While addressing Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) delegates at Gold Hotel in Kakamega County, he stated that his expenses are usually catered for by individuals and institutions who host him wherever he goes.

He further divulged that even when invited to foreign countries to deliver a lecture especially in Universities, those particular institutions settle all his expenses.

“I have been to Nigeria, London, Mexico and many other places to give lectures at universities and my hosts always cater for my bills,” he affirmed.

Mr Odinga later dismissed claims made by National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, that he was receiving monthly stipends from ODM governors.

Duale had earlier asserted that he had evidence to prove that Odinga was benefiting from alleged corruption in different counties as exposed by a report from Auditor General Tom Ouko

At the same time, the former Prime Minister hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta telling him to stop looking for scapegoats after failing in the fight against corruption and also accused Kenyatta of frustrating devolution and falling short of his 2013 election pledges.

On Thursday, President Kenyatta had told off Odinga for what he described as always criticizing the Jubilee government and not allowing him (Kenyatta) execute his mandate.

He decried the CORD leader’s tendency of always condemning corruption when it came to the National Government but shying away when graft touched on opposition counties.
