The four leaders are also accused of influencing tendering processes and getting kickbacks from contractors.

Ms Adul is currently fighting an impeachment case filed against her by members of the assembly.

Mr Ong’ow is also awaiting the outcome of an ODM disciplinary committee investigation on his conduct and that of his deputy John Olum over allegations of abuse of office.
