Embattled Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal will on Thursday this week know his fate on whether the court will cancel his bail or not.

This is after the DPP applied to have the bail cancelled after Governor Lenolkulal re-shuffled his cabinet late last year.

According to the prosecution, the governor disobeyed court orders and bail conditions that were granted to him after he pleaded not guilty to corruption charges.

The prosecution argues that reshuffling of the cabinet amounts to interference of witnesses listed in the case and that it’s contrary to the clear terms of bail barring the governor him access to the Samburu County offices.

However, Lenolkulal defended himself saying that there is no existing court order barring him from discharging his constitutional mandate as the governor.

Through his lawyer Paul Nyamodi, the governor asked the court to dismiss the application.

The Samburu Governor, who was released on a Ksh.10 million bond, is facing graft charges for allegedly using his company Oryx service station to supply petrol and diesel to the county.
