Auditor-General Edward Ouko

Auditor-General Edward Ouko

The Auditor-General Edward Ouko holds one of the most unenviable and thankless jobs in the country. Although he has managed to link corruption in Uhuru Kenyatta led government, Ouko has been treated as the villain. The soft spoken Ouko poked holes on how the sh200 billion Eurobond was looted and exposed the rot that led to the loss of sh791 million at the Devolution ministry. Ouko came under harsh criticism when he suggested that he had been given an appointment ‘to see JP Morgan and other banks that handled the $2 billion Eurobond transactions’. The President responded: "Ati mnataka kuenda kuinterrogate Federal Reserve. Ngai! (You say you want to interrogate the Federal Reserve... God!") Uhuru has criticized the Auditor General of playing to the public gallery and his uncomfortable with him for being close to Raila Odinga.
