The Opposition presidential candidate has claimed that Jubilee leaders were paid billions in kick-backs for the standard gauge railway project. In bare-knuckled politics that is now the norm between the rival political coalitions - the National Super Alliance (NASA) and the Jubilee Party - Raila Odinga claimed that the leaders were paid bribes amounting to Sh130 billion.
However, the candidate did not provide any proof of who was paid and when. "The cost of the SGR was inflated to benefit a few individuals in Jubilee who are working with graft cartels at the expense of Kenyans," he said.
Speaking in Narok County yesterday afternoon as the coalition wound up its campaign in the area, Raila maintained that the cost of the railway was inflated and the extra money pocketed by individuals. "SGR is our baby. We started it with President Kibaki, but Jubilee hijacked it and inflated the price to benefit from it corruptly," said the former prime minister.
