Night in cell for Korane as plea-taking pushed in Sh233m fraud case

What you need to know:

  • Their plea-taking was slated for Monday but it aborted after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) produced the suspects in court late in the afternoon.
  • The governor will likely be the sixth county boss to lose access to his office for being implicated in graft, if a landmark judgment that the Director of Public Prosecution has been citing in corruption cases is applied.
  • The money at the centre of the storm was meant for building Qorahay market, re-carpeting Garissa Township roads and constructing a storm water drainage and pedestrian walkways. 

Garissa Governor Ali Korane and four county government officials will spend Monday night at the EACC cells in Nairobi ahead of their arraignment on Tuesday in a Sh233 million embezzlement case.
