Garissa Governor Ali Korane who was arrested yesterday appeared in court today where he was charged with conspiracy to commit an economic crime. Korane and his Co accused were released on a cash bail of Ksh 3.2 million or Ksh 5 million bond by a Milimani court.

Mr Korane was accused of defrauding Garissa County off Ksh 233 million world Bank grant and not following the financial management rules.

Mr Ali Korane was barred by the court from accessing his county office until the case is heard and determined. The council of Governors had earlier protested to the courts that barring Governors to access their offices once they are charged affects service delivery.

Among the governors who have been accused of corruption include the governor of Nairobi, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, Migori Governor Okoth Obado, and Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Mureithi. All of them are out on bond and they have been barred from accessing their county offices.
