CS Mwangi Kiunjuri grilled by DCI again

CS Kiunjuri grilled, while former President Moi is dragged into the dams saga

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri has appeared before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for a second time over the ongoing probe into the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal.

His Trade Peter Munya is also expected at the DCI headquarters on Tuesday to shed light on the saga surrounding the controversy behind the Ksh21 billion used for the dams.

Meanwhile, the DCI is reportedly probing how 28 vehicles bought using funds meant for the construction of the dams were mysteriously transferred to two privately owned warehouses.

Top of the range vehicles  

According to the Daily Nation, one of the warehouses is associated with former President Daniel Arap Moi and the vehicles were not registered.

Investigations revealed that Ksh160 million of the money was paid to Toyota Kenya for 45 top of the range vehicles.

Only 17 of the vehicles were registered in under CMC di Ravenna, an Italian firm hired to build the two dams and has since filed for insolvency in Italy.

Traced vehicles

18 of the vehicles were taken to a bonded warehouse on Mombasa Road, Nairobi, owned by logistics firm Mitchell Cotts while the other 10 were taken to another warehouse at JKIA owned by Siginon Freight Kenya, a logistics firm associated with the former President.

Sleuths have so far traced and impounded 37 of the vehicles, which are currently at the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road.

Detectives are currently looking into 122 companies that received money from the dams kitty.
