Tuesday April 2, 2019-Embattled Samburu Governor Moses Kasaine was today arrested over mega corruption in his county where he is accused of looting the public coffers of millions of shillings with his cahoots.

Detectives from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission arrested the Governor in Nairobi over Sh85 million petrol scandal. He was detained at the agencies headquarters at Integrity Center.

According to EACC, Kasaine along with other 13 top county officials fraudulently defrauded the County Government Sh85 million with an additional of 2 billion still under investigation.

DPP Noordin Haji on Monday issued a go ahead to have the Governor and his officials prosecuted over conspiracy to commit economic crimes among others.

But before his arrest, Kasaine spent the better part of Sunday with Deputy President William Ruto at Kiambu County, attending a series of functions in company of Governor Ferdinand Waititu and his Kajiado counterpart, Joseph Lenku.

At Kiambaa, Kasaine castigated Opposition team for their plot against DP Ruto and accused investigations agencies of bias, a view held by DP Ruto as well in the fight against corruption.
