The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji on Wednesday moved to assure Kenyans that investigation and review of files in the Kimwarer and Arror dam scandal was at an advanced stage.

In a statement released by Deputy DPP Dorcas Oduor on behalf of Haji, the top prosecutor said the corruption case was complex and required collaboration with foreign agencies.

The DPP’s office added that it had called on investigating agencies to speed up the probe to allow Haji to review the files before making a determination on prosecution.

Complex issues

Investigations into the facts surrounding the two projects are at an advanced stage, it is acknowledged that the issues involved are complex and require delving into a web of convoluted financial transactions spanning a considerable period and spread across several borders.

The DPP confirms that he had requested utmost speed in conclusion of these inquiries so that he may have the opportunity to study the files and decide, independently and objectively, the appropriate steps to make, in connection with the information he shall have received,” the press statement read in part.

The statement came a few days after the DCI had summoned several senior government officials including five CSs and two PSs linked to the controversial project suspected to have led to loss of Sh21 billion of public funds,

Among those who have recorded statements include CSs Henry Rotich (Treasury), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture), Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution), Adan Mohamed (Trade), and Peter Munya of Industrialisation.
