Last week, Uhuru dared critics of the audit, saying he was ready to have it even backdated to his grandfather. And on Sunday, Raila, speaking in Kisumu, accused critics of the lifestyle audit of attempting to divert the attention of Kenyans through side shows. “Just like Uhuru recently stated that he is ready to have his grandfather’s wealth audited, I also ask them to audit me, my father and even my grandfather,” he said. He spoke when he closed a month-long football tournament organised by area Woman Representative Rosa Buyu through the National Government Affirmative Action Fund.

"The country is losing close to Sh700 billion annually through corruption. This money, if well spent, can save Kenyans from the increased taxation on fuel and fund many development projects," Raila said.
