State House boss denies corruption charges

29 January 2015, 14:35 William Korir

Nairobi - State House Comptroller Lawrence Lenayapa has denied any role in the weigh bridge corruption incident that has caught on camera, saying he had nothing to do with the saga.

Lenayapa appeared before the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC Thursday to explain his role in the incident last weekend in Gilgil where Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter was caught on camera ordering police officers to illegally release an impounded lorry.

In the video, Keter was heard saying that he had been handed permission by Lenayapa to have the lorry released.

But during his grilling session, it is understood that Lenayapa said he had nothing to do with the comment by Keter.

He also said that he would cooperate with investigations but added he was innocent of any charges.

" He denied taking part in any corrupt incident and even granting any permission to Keter to have the lorry released as had been claimed by the MP," a source close to the proceedings told News24.

Lenayapa did not address members of the press after the session at the EACC's Integrity House headquarters in Nairobi.

On Tuesday, Keter insisted that he had been on a fact finding mission in Gilgil to find out the levels of corruption on the ground.

He was accompanied by nominated MP Sonia Birdi.

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP has said that it will institute criminal proceedings against Keter if the EACC recommends so.
