Busia County Governor Sospeter Ojaamong is a corrupt man.
In July, 2018, the governor was arrested by detectives and taken to court on multiple corruption charges.
He also spent over four hours with detectives from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) who questioned him over Kshs. 8 million loss of public funds to a German company, Madam R Enterprises, for waste management services.
Ojaamong fiercely defended his conduct at some point stating that the money was not lost but paid for cleaning of ‘all the towns across the county for one year and training staff on waste management’.
How can one believe this lie?
Ojaamong had, without following proper procedures, unilaterally signed a memorandum of understanding with the aforementioned German company.
Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji had at that time stated that, there was ‘sufficient evidence to warrant prosecution’.
Where did this case reach?
An application from the DPP to adduce further evidence gathered in the corruption case against Governor Ojaamong was dismissed.
The High Court ruled that the prosecution is geared towards pre-emptying production of exhibits by the defense which have been identified by the prosecution witnesses
Has DPP Haji become a ‘house of cleaning’ or witch hunt?
That’s for residents of Busia to say.
We are aware there’s low development and cleanliness in towns in Busia County.
Nevertheless, information reaching the chief editor of this site reveals a new scandal in Busia County.
