You Won't Believe The Stupidity. Samburu Residents Demand The Release of Governor Who Stole Their Money
The governor of Samburu County HE Moses Kasaine was arrested by the EACC over a fuel supply scandal involving his county government. The scam has reportedly led to the loss of almost Sh90 million of public funds.
Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission arrested the governor on Tuesday morning and is currently being held at the Integrity Center, the headquarders of the EACC.
Moses Kasaine was pounced on at his Nairobi home in the early hours of the morning in a crackdown that was well coordinated.
This is coming just hours after Noordin Haji ordered the prosecution of the governor, his deputy Julius Leseeto, businessman Hesbon Ndathi, and 11 sitting and former ex-chief officers.
Oryx Service Station, a gas station owned by Moses Kasaine and a Mr Ndathi, were given a tender to supply fuel to the county government.
The governor is in the process of being released on a Ksh10 million bail after the court reduced the earlier figure of Ksh100 million.
A section of Samburu residents took to the streets to demand for his release claiming that he is an elected leader, not appointed, and thus deserved more respect than he was currently being accorded as a guest of the state.
The residents, through posters and leaflets, have chosen to blame the handshake for their governor's troubles saying the handshake between president Uhuru and Raila Odinga has only brought confusion in the country.
