Samburu County governor Moses Lenolkulal has been dealt a blow as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji demands for cancellation of his bond.
This is after the governor allegedly flouted the bond terms repeatedly.
The DPP said that the governor violated bail terms issued on April 2 by the Anti-Corruption court.
In a landmark ruling, Justice Mumbi Ngugi ruled that governors with graft cases should not be allowed to access their offices, unless they get written permission from the EACC.
Lenolkulal reshuffled his Cabinet, going against bail conditions.
Through prosecution counsel Wesley Nyamache, Haji wants the court to address the matter urgently and punish the governor.
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.
He was arrested early April by EACC officers.
He was released on bond but was prohibited from selling, charging, leasing, developing and transferring a parcel of land situated in Karen, Nairobi pending the hearing and determination of a case filed against him by the anti-corruption commission.
The governor was also barred from dealing with funds contained in two accounts held at KCB Bank.
In the suit, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) sought recovery of over Ksh.80 million from the governor as proceeds of corruption and for forfeiture of the parcels of land acquired with the proceeds of corrupt conduct.
