DCI and DPP seek help from these people over dam project scandal
We can't do this alone
DPP Haji, when appearing before the Senate Justice and Legal Affairs committee, mentioned that the extra hand was required as the cases were complex.
“The cases are becoming complex. In the case of dams and the Sh3.2 billion Ruaraka land scandal, we have foreign jurisdiction to deal with.
“We will need to get civil engineers, forensic auditors, the Central Bank of Kenya, the Financial Reporting Centre, the Asset Recovery Authority (ARA), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the Kenya Revenue Authority to ensure that we have a watertight case to put before the courts,” remarked Haji.
The DPP further explained that the probe into the multi-billion saga had been expanded to cover other water projects throughout the country.
CSs Wamalwa, Kiunjuri and Chelugui to be summoned by Kinoti
The DCI a week ago, had summoned Treasury CS Henry Rotich to explain how finances were poured into a ghost project.
Rotich had been questioned to breakdown how in December last year, an Italian firm named CMC di Ravenna, was paid Ksh4.3 billion for the Arror dam, and Sh3.5 billion for the Kimwarer dam on November 6 2018.
The two projects are stated to make 15 per cent of the contract sum of Ksh28.5 billion for Arror, and Ksh23.1 billion for Kimwarer.
Kinoti had pointed out that Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa, Water CS Simon Chelugui and Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri would be summoned for questioning at the DCI headquarters.
