Wanted man

Director of public prosecutions Noordin Haji

The director of public prosecutions Noordin Haji said that Kenya will be seeking the extradition of an Italian director of CMC di Ravenna firm, to face corruption charges in the Arror and Kimwarer dam scandal. 

According to reports by Reuters, Paolo Porcelli, the Italian director of CMC di Ravenna will face the charges related to the tenders for the two billion shilling projects. 

DPP Haji was quoted by the international media house stating that Kenya will issue an international arrest warrant against Mr Porcelli.

On Monday, DPP Haji ordered the arrest of 28 suspects, including Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, at least two Principal Secretaries and top government officials in connection with the dams scandal.

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.
