The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is nowhere near letting no the neck of Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal.

The corruption watchdog has launched investigations into the 600 million worth of assets, tasking the Samburu county boss to explain particulars of his income, source of money deposits and transfers in seven bank accounts, cost of acquisition of properties while proving bank receipts for payments of every property.

According to EAC, despite his net salary being 42.3 million shillings between January 2013 and February 2019 Lenolkulal acquired assets worth Ksh600 million.

“The commission… reasonably suspected that you engaged in corruption and economic crime having unexplained assets. You are hereby afforded a reasonable opportunity to explain in writing the disproportion between the assets concerned and your known legitimate sources of income within 14 days of receipt of this notice,” reads part of the letter from EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak.

However, in an interview with NTV, the governor accused EAC of malice.

“I have been audited by KRA and they have given me a clean bill of health. I am tax compliant and there is no trace of county money that has gone into my account,” Lenolkulal said.

Among the assets in question are four prime properties in Karen, two luxury vehicles and county funds amounting to 536 million shillings.
