Also implicated in the dam scandal are Treasury CS Henry Rotich and PS Kamau Thugge for the loss Ksh 19 billion in a project that did not take off.

In an arrest warrant issued by DPP Noordin Hajji, the suspects in the Arror-Kimwarer dam scandal are to answer to charges of allocating Ksh 63 billion.

Initially, the overall cost of completing the dams was to cost taxpayer money Ksh 46 billion but Treasury included additional fees taking the cost to Ksh 63 billion.

DPP Hajji who was confident of having enough evidence to prosecute the suspects, posed to question as to why the payment was made before the project took off.

KVDA management was found guilty of going contrary to procurement procedures as the law demands a competitive procedure before allocating tender.
