CMC Di Ravenna saga 

The DPP claimed that his office had gathered evidence to prove ksh19,714,366,991 was lost through a well-choreographed scheme to defraud public funds.

He said that probes revealed that the officials flouted procurement rules when they awarded the contract to CMC Di Ravenna while aware that the Italian firm was struggling and was under liquidation in Italy.

CMC Di Ravenna was awarded the tender although government officials were aware that the Italian firm had not completed three other projects. 

DPP Haji also blasted KVDA officials for locking out other companies that were qualified to undertake the dams project adding that they could have done it at a cheaper cost.
