Emma Hardy, a British Member of Parliament (MP), has denied knowing that the Kenyatta family owns the shillings 152 million flat she was renting in London.
” British MP, Emma had absolutely no knowledge of this,” a spokesperson for Hardy claimed after she was presented with the expose from the Pandora Papers.
She signed a conventional tenancy agreement with a reputable agency that was approved by the independent organization in charge of MPs’ housing costs, according to MP’s spokesperson
The spokesperson also said the British MP was astounded by the findings of the Pandora research and believes they demonstrate the urgent need for increased transparency..
Seven members of the Kenyatta family were linked to 11 offshore firms and stocks in the recently revealed Pandora Papers.
The first family members are claimed to have used offshore firms to acquire three properties in the United Kingdom, according to the documents. One is the above-mentioned flat near Westminster in London.
Mama Ngina Kenyatta and her two daughters, Wambui Pratt and Anna Nyokabi Muthama, bought the flat in secret in 2000.
The Pandora Papers also revealed that Muhoho Kenyatta, the president’s younger brother who oversees a substantial portion of the family’s enterprises, had an offshore company in 2016 with a cash, stock, and bond portfolio worth over shillings 3 billion.
