Powerful President Daniel Moi’s aide Joshua Kulei is still waiting for the government to accept a proposal to withdraw a Sh17.9 million corruption case against him.

He wants the matter settled out of court.

Kulei is charged alongside former Kenya Airport Authority Managing Director Peter Kipyegon Langat, former Lands Commissioner Wilson Gachanja and former Kenya Pipeline Company Manager Ezekiel Komen.

It is said that they conspired to defraud the government by irregularly transferring 12 plots land owned by the Kenya Airport Authority.

Kulei is separately charged with obtaining a whooping Sh17.9 million through the sale of public land in Mombasa to a private firm.

Parties agreed to return to court on November 23 “to confirm whether the DPP and the EACC have agreed to the proposed settlement.”

According the prosecution, Kulei obtained Sh12 million from Gas Company Ltd on May 19,1999 in Nairobi and another Sh5.9 million by falsely pretending that Sian Limited had paid land rent, rates and assessment fees.

Earlier lawyers Pravin Bowry and Stephen Mwenesi who are representing the accused persons had blamed the prosecution for delaying the case.

The case has been in court for the last 15 years.
