CS Rotich grilled at DCI headquarters over dams scandal

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich is currently being grilled at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road over the Arror and Kimwarer Dams saga in Elgeyo Marakwet County.

Rotich who has been there since 5am is expected to shed more light on the Ksh.21 billion payment for the dam projects that have yet to commence since 2017.

A source within the investigating team says the cabinet secretary is expected to answer 300 questions on how the monies were released to the Italian firm before the project commenced, but more so without designs.

Rotich will also be questioned as to why he went against the advice of the Attorney General and signed off a deal with a company grappling with financial constraints

If found culpable, CS Rotich is likely to face graft charges alongside Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) Managing Director David Kimosop, KVDA procurement boss William Maina Kiprotich and the authority’s engineer Paul Serem among other officers.
