Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti has quit the grand graft case against Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal and 13 others after the suspects complained of bias.

The Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti of the Anti-Corruption Court issued a cash bail of KSh 100 million or KSh 150 million bond after he denied charges of graft and abuse of office.

He further ordered Lenolkulal not to step in his county office until an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji to bar him from accessing the offices for two years is determined.

Several legal practitioners criticised the magistrate’s bail terms with others arguing Ogoti was indirectly denying bail to the county boss.

The besieged Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal has finally walked to freedom from Industrial Area Remand Prison after paying KSh 10 million bail as directed by the High Court.

Lenolkulal was arrested on Tuesday, April 2, by detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over KSh 84.6 million fuel scam.
