Thursday September 4, 2019 - Outgoing Auditor General, Edward Ouko, has disclosed that his life could be in danger after completing his 8 year tenure.
In an exclusive interview with Citizen TV, Ouko said that there was no security arrangement after serving in office, stressing that change needed to be implemented to ensure that outgoing Auditor Generals were safe even after office.
“Anyone who had an ill motive would never have manifested it during my tenure because they know I have security but when you leave without a clear post service arrangement, it’s the most insecure time,” Ouko said.
He also said during his tumultuous tenure, he had received a couple of death threats, to which he did not pay much attention to because he had security.
“That never worried me, in fact, it worried my family more than myself.”
“For family, they take it with a bit more seriousness,” he stated.
Ouko was appointed as Auditor General on August 27, 2011.
