He has been ordered not to step into office until case is determined. This is how to deal with corrupt leaders, heavy bail and lock them out of workplace.
The governor was on Tuesday hit with the highest ever cash bail term in the country after Nairobi Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti ordered him to pay a cash bail of Sh100 million.
The governor had just entered a not guilty plea in a corruption case he is charged alongside 13 others over Sh84 million fuel scandal.
Mr Kasainie is charged with conspiring to commit the offence of corruption, which led to unlawful payment of Sh84,695,996 to his petrol station known as Oryx Service Station.
