Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal has been charged with four counts of corruption and abuse of office.

Lenolkulal who was arrested on Tuesday morning,was arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts hours after he was presented at EACC headquarters for questioning.

Governor Lenolkulal is accused of irregularly obtaining Ksh.84.7 million by supplying fuel to the Samburu County Government through his fuel company, Oryx Service Station between March 27, 2013 and March 25, 2019.

“Between March 27, 2013 and March 25, 2019, at Samburu County, being the Governor of Samburu County Government, you used your office to improperly confer upon yourself a benefit of Ksh.84,695,996.55 through Oryx Service Station, a business entity owned by yourself, through the supply of fuel to Samburu County Government,” read the charge sheet.

The governor was also charged with conspiracy to commit an offense of corruption, abuse of office, conflict of interest and unlawful acquisition of public property contrary to the law, charges to which he pleaded not guilty.

He has since been released on a cash bail of Ksh.100 Million.
