Agano Party presidential candidate, David Waihiga has threatened to cut diplomatic ties with nations that will refuse to release Kenya’s money stashed abroad if he takes office.

Waihiga who spoke at the 2022 presidential debate said more than Sh20 trillion is out of the country.

“In my consideration there is not less than Sh20 trillion outside the country that can be brought back,” he said.

A lot of countries have been willing to send our money back but there has been lack of good will on the side of our leaders

He added: “A lot of countries have been willing to send our money back but there has been lack of good will on the side of our leaders.”

Why cut off

He stated that Kenya will have nothing to do with any nation that will refuse to release Kenya’s money meant to grow the nation.

“Why can’t it be done? If a country is holding our money then there is no question of international cooperation,” he said.

“Everything is on the table and Kenya needs to move forward,” furthered Waihiga, stating that hard measures will have to be taken but cutting ties will be a last option.                         

The Agano party flag bearer when cornered on the issue of his communication with the nations he purports are keeping Kenya’s money stated that he wrote to the nations but is yet to receive any response.

The first part of the presidential debate intended for two candidates was only attended by one as George Wajakoya failed to attend the debate stating that his expectations were not met.
