An anti- corruption court has ruled that Ministry of Transport Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Chris Obure has case to answer in Anglo Leasing graft saga.
In a brief ruling, Magistrate Anne Mwangi put Obure and other former government officials on their defence after the prosecution proved a case against them.
“After evaluating the evidence on record, I find that the state has established a prima facie case against all the accused persons on the case,” she said.
The pre-trial case is slated for October 8.
Obure is charged alongside former Postmaster-General Francis Chahonyo, former Transport PS Sammy Kyungu, and former finance Secretary Samuel Bundotich.
They are also accused of abuse of office and breach of trust.
In February, Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji said he was frustrated by the numerous adjournments in the Anglo Leasing fraud case.
Through State Counsel Eva Kanyuira, DPP informed Milimani Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku that the prosecution was frustrated since the case had not proceeded for days with no good grounds given for the delays.
Kanyuira asked lawyers representing suspects to take the matter seriously since the matter had been in court for the last six years.
