Another revelation from the Pandora Papers now.
The family of Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta secretly owned a network offshore companies for decades, according to the leak.
Mr Kenyatta and six members of his family have been linked to 13 offshore companies in Panama and the British Virgin Islands.
One company owned by his brother had stocks and bonds worth $30m (£22m).
The president and his family have not yet responded to requests for comment.
The documents also show that a foundation called Varies was set up in 2003 in Panama, naming Mr Kenyatta’s mother, Ngina, 88, as the first benefactor – and Kenya’s leader as second benefactor who would inherit it after her death.
The purpose of the foundation and the value of its assets are unknown.
In 2018, Mr Kenyatta told the BBC’s HARDtalk programme that his family’s wealth was known to the public, and as president he had declared his assets as required by law.
“As I have always stated, what we own – what we have – is open to the public. As a public servant I’m supposed to make my wealth known and we declare every year,” he said.
“If there’s an instance where somebody can say that what we have done or obtained has not been legitimate, say so – we are ready to face any court.”
