The governor of Samburu, a locality in the Northern Part of Kenya has been arrested over a fuel supply fraud involving about $827,000.

Governor Moses Kasaine was arrested after a Kenya’s chief prosecutor, Noordin Haji ordered that he be charged with conspiracy to commit economic crimes, abuse of office and conflict of interest.

Kenyan’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, EACC, detectives said they were looking for 13 other officials including his deputy, county secretary, chief finance officer, former chief officer in charge of environment and several other chief officers.

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.
