The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has ordered the immediate arrest and prosecution of Busia Governor Sospeter Odekee Ojamaa Ojamoong over alleged abuse of office.
According to Director of public prosecution, Governor Sospeter Ojaamong alongside 9 other county staff are accused of irregular acquisition of integrated solid waste management services in the county.
DPP Noordin Haji also noted that the Governor flouted procurement procedures leading to the loss of at least 20 million shillings. The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) had accused the governor of single sourcing a company registered under the name Madam R Ltd, which was awarded a tender for waste management.
In his defense, the Governor has dismissed these claims and accused the ethics and anti- corruption commission of political witch-hunt.
Governor Sospeter Ojaamong is in his second term as Busia county governor.
