Murathe however, has maintained that the Money was a debt payoff between him and Cyrus Jirongo. He further stated that this move is politically motivated, to divert Kenyans from focusing on the country’s real issues.
Murathe said,” It is political harassment and diversionary tactics. When they don’t know how to deal with challenges facing the country they look for things to divert.”
On thursday 3 November, former Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo, former Gatanga MP and Cotu secretary general Francis Atwoli were summoned by EACC over a suspicious Sh200 million land saga in Nairobi.
Murathe maintained that he has never been involved in any illegal transactions, the money was just a debt pay back.
Murathe said,”I’m not involved in what the rest were doing with the county. What I know is Jirongo owed me money and I was paid. Where he got it from is none of my business.”
