"I this morning handed myself to . As a law abiding citizen I will cooperate with EACC in the investigations. As the Governor, Iam committed to eradicating corruption in Busia County," Ojaamong said in a tweet dismissing media reports that he was arrested.

In a statement, Haji said that the evidence presented to his office was sufficient to warrant the prosecution of the 9 officials and the County boss Ojaamong.
