Samburu governor Moses Lenolkulal has filed for a review of the bail amount at the High Court Anti Corruption Division on Wednesday morning.

The governor who is still being held at the Industrial Area Remand Prison after he was unable to raise the Ksh.100million termed the bail as ‘outrageous’ and ‘unprecedented’

“My Lord the accused is greatly aggrieved by the said terms which are completely outrageous and unprecedented. It goes against the bail and bond policy, specifically that the bond amount should not be excessive and should not be greater than necessary to guarantee that the accused persons will appear in court,” lawyer Paul Nyamodi said.

Lenolkulal’s lawyer further assured the court that his client does not pose a flight risk because of his capacity as the Samburu Governor.

The case is set to be heard before justice Mumbi Ngungi
