Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal seem to be running broke. Well, he is one rich guy but can apparently not enjoy his wealth following restrictions by the Court of Law.
The Governor saw his Four bank accounts at the Kenya Commercial Bank get frozen after he was alleged to be involved in corrupt dealings that saw Samburu County lose Millions to fraudulent dealings orchestrated by him and some of his proxies.
He has now filed an application seeking unconditional access to his four frozen bank accounts.
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has objected Lenolkulal’s application.
In an affidavit by Joel Khisa, a forensic investigator with the commission, the Anti-Graft agancy has claimed the governor has yet to demonstrate that all the money in the accounts was not acquired illegally.
EACC had obtained preservation orders against the governor’s four bank accounts with a total of Sh14.6 million on March 19.
The governor moved to the High Court under a certificate of urgency seeking to have said orders discharged saying the court froze his salary accounts despite the funds being obtained through legal and honest business dealings.
He claimed he has been unable to access his salary to cater for his personal and family subsistence.
In response however, EACC claims the application by the governor is fatally defective and lacking in merit and, therefore, ought to be dismissed.
