Busia County Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has been arrested by Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission officials Wednesday morning after presenting himself at the Integrity Centre in Nairobi.
This comes a day after Director for Public Prosecution Noordin Haji ordered the arrest of Ojaamong and other nine County officials for corruption allegations.
Mr. Haji said he is satisfied that there is sufficient evidence to charge them.
He also wants them to answer to charges of engaging in a project without proper planning, abuse of office and failure to comply with the law relating to the management of funds.
Nine other officials are also on the verge of being arrested anytime.
Ojaamong has been taken to court at Milimani.
