Together, 14 suspects are linked to the fuel-supply scandal in which Oryx Service Station, which police believe is owned, owned by Kasaine and a close ally of his, were given a tender to supply fuel for the country.

Prosecutor Noordin said investigations had established that the Governor was trading with the county government through Oryx Service Station for supply of fuel since March 27, 2013. Adding that the service station had received $827,000 and the money was “shared” between the governor and a “proxy” of his.

The governor had failed or neglected to disclose his interest in the service station, and had engaged in “conduct that is expressly prohibited in law”, the prosecutor said.
