Good news for Kenyans as Governor is released on a cash bail of Sh 100 million for stealing Sh 86.4 million - This is a good message to the corrupt


Tuesday April 2, 2019 - Samburu Governor, Moses Lenolkulal, has been charged with four counts of abuse of office and conflict of interest leading to the loss of Sh 86.4 million in his County.

According to the Prosecution, the Governor looted the money through Oryx Service Station which he owns.

Anti-Corruption Magistrate, Douglas Ogoti, freed the Governor on a cash bail of Sh 100 million or a bond of Sh 150 million.

The Governor was arrested on Tuesday morning by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives after the Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, recommended his prosecution.

According to Haji, investigations established that Lenolkulal was trading with the County Government through Oryx Service Station in the supply of fuel since March 27, 2013, to date.

The Governor is said to have failed and/or neglected to disclose his interest in the said service station.

"It is clear that the Governor engaged in conduct that is expressly prohibited in law and in clear violation of the constitutional principles governing the conduct of public State officers," Haji told a Press Conference on Tuesday morning,

During the period in question, Oryx Service Station received a total of Sh84million from the Samburu County Government.

According to the DPP, the money was shared between the Governor and his proxy, Hesbon Ndathi.

The payment received by the service station was facilitated by chief officers in contravention of the law.

17 other Samburu County officials are also in the dock over the loss of Sh 2 billion from the County.
