Eyes on Uhuru as DPP goes after 10 Cabinet Secretaries

Trying times

The investigation centres on the infamous Ruaraka land scandal that has dominated media headlines for the past two months.

Citizen TV reported its sources indicating that the DPP was currently reviewing files that have implicated at least 30 senior government officials, including ten members of the Cabinet.

The Sh3.2 billion fraud case has also implicated three commissioners of the National Lands Commission, and a number of high-ranking businessmen.

The Office of the DPP, through its Twitter handle, has admitted that the Ruaraka land saga is one of the complex cases that it is reviewing but assured the public that action would be taken.

The EACC is said to have documented the money trail on how proceeds of the initial Sh1.5 billion payout was shared.

The trail identifies properties in Meru, Lamu, and Nairobi - estimated to be worth Sh450 million – as part of the proceeds from the alleged fraud.

If the DPP decides to move ahead with arrest and prosecution as has been his mode of operation, it will be a true testing point of President Kenyatta's resolve to ending corruption in his government.
