Garissa County Governor Nathif Jama today appeared before the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission for processing before he is taken to court to plead to corruption charges.
The governor is facing charges of procurement malpractices that led to the irregular leasing of ambulances in his county from Emergency Plus, a company fully owned by the Kenya Red Cross.
He was accompanied by four other governors, led by Council of Governors chairman Peter Munya and his Wajir counterpart Ahmed Abdullahi.
Others were Wajir Senator Abdirahman Hassan, former Deputy speaker and Lagdera MP Farah Maalim, several elected and nominated leaders from his county as well as members of the public.
There was drama outside the EACC offices after the huge crown escorting the governor demanded to to be let in. They were however locked out as detectives interrogated Mr Jama.
Jama was also accompanied by his lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi.
