Treasury CS Henry Rotich to spend the night in custody

Treasury CS Henry Rotich will spend the night in police custody after he was arrested on Monday following the Arror-Kimwarer dam scandal.

CS Henry Rotich was arrested alongside 27 other officials over Ksh 63 Billion dam scandal as he is set to be arraigned in court on Tuesday.

On Monday morning, the Treasury CS presented himself to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) following an arrest warrant issued against him by the DPP.

Addressing the media on Monday, DPP Noordin Hajji said that his office has enough evidence to prove irregularities during the Arror-Kimwarer scandal.

The DPP further revealed that the cost to construct the two dams was to cost Ksh 46 Billion but the Treasury added a facility charge pushing the amount to Ksh 63 Billion, an excess of 17 Billion.

In addition to that, the deal was pushed so fast and payments released contrary to the relevant laws governing procurement processes.
