Blow to UHURU and the war against graft as Judge OGOTI quits days after controversially handing Samburu Governor, KASAINE, 100 million bail


Friday April 5, 2019-Anti-corruption Judge, Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti, has recused himself from the ongoing corruption case in which Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal and 13 others are accused of embezzling Ksh84 million.

Ogoti recused himself from the trial on Thursday after the suspects accused him of bias for fining them a high bail and bond explaining that those terms prejudged them.

While delivering the ruling, the magistrate acknowledged that he would not cling to the case even though his conscience was clear.

“I’m just the head of the anti-corruption case and there are other people who can handle the matter. I have deferred the case to Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi. The suspects should be remanded in custody until that time,” stated judge Ogoti.

The Sh100 million bail handed to Kasaine has since been reduced by High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi to mere Sh10 million.
