The arrest of CS Rotich and PS Thugge follows a warrant of arrest issued by DPP Noordin Hajji on Monday.

Speaking on the Arror-Kimwarer scandal, the DPP said that his office has enough evidence to prosecute all those mentioned in the case.

He further said that the agreed amount to construct the dams was Ksh 46 Billion but Treasury added a facility fee increasing the amount to Ksh 63 Billion, in excess of 17 Billion.
