Odhiambo has been charged with one count of storing petroleum products that did not pass the Kenya Bureau of Standards requirements at Ridgeways petrol station along Kiambu Road.
Odhiambo appeared before Chief magistrate Francis Andayito and was charged with being in possession of 14,000 liters of petrol and 28,000 liters of diesel all of which were substandard.
The court was told that Odhiambo had stored petroleum products namely diesel and motorvehicle gasoline in two petroleum storage tanks.
