According to Haji, “The suspect will be charged with abuse of office and stealing by a person employed in public service.”

Osoro appeared in court, was charged and released on Ksh.600,000 bail.

The ODPP received an internal audit report in April last year concerning alleged corruption in the Transport Division.

A letter from the Kenya National Audit Office followed soon after in February 2018 reiterating the claim.

Haji later forwarded the report to the DCI and investigations were launched  into the damning allegations against William Osoro.
