Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal has been under a string of attacks from the Director Of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti after his office being exposed in fraud cases.
But the governor has turned on the elders to help him chase away the bad omen.
This comes after what the elders termed as a string of bad luck that befell Governor Lenolkulal following plans by the anti-corruption commission to prosecute him and other top Samburu County officials over suspected fraud involving Ksh.2 billion.
The traditional prayer ceremony was held in the governor’s office where a section of elders from Tinga area in Samburu Central sub-county had on Thursday protested against a decision by the county government to leave them out in a title deeds issuance program after their group ranch land was subdivided.
“Through prayers, we have come here to solve problems that our governor has been going through, may God bless all the good work he has done for our county so that we may continue,” said one of the elders after the prayer ceremony.
Samburu Woman Representative Maison Leshoomo who also attended the ceremony praised the elders for their decision.
“Our elders usually pray whenever there is a problem and therefore we thank them for traveling up to this place to bless governor and the entire county,” Leshoomo said.
At the moment, a cloud of uncertainty hangs over the fate of the county governor and top officials who are still under investigation over suspected fraud.
Documents from EACC and the courts show freeze orders on assets owned by the governor that could provide grounds for prosecution of Lenolkulal.
The Governor has been under intensified investigation since his arrest on February 20, that followed a raid on his homes.
He is likely to face charges of misappropriation of funds that EACC has been investigating through his five bank accounts at KCB which are said to contain a total of Ksh.14 million.
EACC riding on the strength of a court order that allowed them to access the five accounts at KCB belonging to the governor is keen on the transactions processed through the accounts since January 2013 until this month.
The anti-corruption commission also got court orders freezing properties belonging to the governor among them four pieces of land in Karen, Nairobi.
