High Court orders EACC to seize and sale of multi-million property belonging to Former Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal

High Court orders EACC to seize and sale of multi-million property belonging to Former Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal.

Former Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal has been dealt a blow after the High Court issued orders to seize his four prime properties in Karen including his multimillion matrimonial home, over an ongoing graft case.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) stated that it intends to recover Ksh.80 million from the Lenolkulal, obtained as proceeds of corruption when he served as Samburu Governor.

According to filings by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Lenolkulul purportedly used proceeds from corrupt activities to acquire four properties in Karen, each valued at Ksh 15 million, where he subsequently constructed residential houses. The commission alleges that these acquisitions were financed unlawfully during his tenure as governor.

Additionally, the EACC said that it has commenced the process to implement the judgment by the High Court and will recover the money with a 12 percent interest.

In the graft case, Lenolkulal was accused of instigating trade between the Samburu County Government and Oryx Service Station, which he allegedly owns, by supplying fuel worth over Ksh.84 million.

He and his co-accused persons were charged with various corruption offences arising from the unlawful payment of the said amount to Oryx Service.

During the period under investigation (2013/2014 to 2018/2019), Lenolkulul, while serving as governor, is accused of engaging in contracts with the Samburu County government for the supply of fuel through Oryx Service Station, a business registered solely in his name.

EACC contends that Lenolkulul received over Ksh 80 million from these contracts, which were deposited into an account held by Oryx Service Station at Kenya Commercial Bank Limited. 

The commission asserts that this constitutes a conflict of interest and violates anti-corruption laws.
