Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal has been arrested.

The county boss was arrested on Tuesday morning by EACC over Sh2 billion he is suspected to have looted from the county coffers.

The DPP Noordin Haji gave the nod for the arrest of the Samburu Governor on Monday night.

According to Haji, investigations established Lenolkulal was trading with the county government through Oryx Service Station for the supply of fuel since March 27, 2013, to date.

The governor is said to have failed and or neglected to disclose his interest in the said service station.

“It is clear that the governor engaged in conduct that is expressly prohibited in law and in clear violation of the constitutional principles governing the conduct of public state officers,” Haji said in a statement on Tuesday morning.
