Bomas of Kenya's former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Peter Koria has denied seven graft charges leveled against him by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

He was arraigned before the Anti-Corruption Court after being arrested last Friday.

Appearing before trial Magistrate Thomas Nzioki, he was ordered to deposit a Kes 1 million cash bail with an alternative Kes 5 million bond.

The prosecution told the court that Koria failed to comply with the law relating to procurement.

The court was told that being the accounting officer he allowed the procurement of kitchen wares which were not factored in the 2021 Financial year.

The Accused was represented by lawyers Ken Nyaundi, Bryan Khaemba, and Danstan Omari.

The lawyers pleaded with the court that the charged leveled against him were malicious and even the seven counts had been duplicated to show that their client faced serious charges.

They told the Court that their client was suspended in November last year but was lifted by the High Court's order.

The court directed the prosecution to supply all documentary evidence to the defense to allow the matter to continue for pretrial on 9th May 2024.
