Embattled Samburu Governor Moses Kasaine has asked the court to unfreeze his four bank accounts, arguing that he never obtained money fraudulently.
In March this year, Kasaine was arrested over transaction of Sh84 million on pretext that a company associated with him had supplied petrol and diesel to the county government.
EACC through its lawyers managed to convince the court to freeze four bank accounts for six months after Justice John Onyiego's ruling over the case.
But in an application seen by the Standard, Kasaine now claims he cannot be able to pay his bills since all his salary accounts are affected.
“I obtained all my money through legal means through my businesses and salaries, and not as a result of corrupt dealings as alleged,” he said.
But Kasaine in his application denied the allegations and accused the court of treating him unfairly by issuing the orders without giving him a chance to be heard.
“The orders were issued on a basis of baseless and unreasonable apprehension that I will withdraw and transfer the funds held in my accounts. It was unfair for the commission to seek the orders against me without giving me a chance to explain my sources of wealth,” swore Kasaine.
The latest application is however not yet been handled. All the four accounts are still under investigations by members of EACC team.
