Kenya Pipeline Managing Director Joe Sang has been arrested alongside former NHIF CEO Simeon Ole Kirgoty by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation officers over graft claims.

The arrest comes days after a report from the auditor general office cited the amount to be used in the construction of the 470km pipeline from Mombasa to Nairobi.

Members of Parliament have complained about the parastatal saying that millions of taxpayers money has been misused and a probe needs to be done as soon as possible.

A parliamentary grilling had already been planned for the KPC boss to inquire about ksh 2 billion questionable tenders and payments done under his tenure.

Mr. Sang announced his plans of leaving the parastatal prompting the KPC board to call for a quick audit of the company.
