Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has described the arrests of Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal suspects a charade by the DPP.

The Senator who visited the DCI headquarters on Monday after Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal suspects surrendered to the DCI told journalists that the charge sheet were a farce.

"I have looked at the charge sheets and I can tell you the entire thing is a charade," Senator Murkomen said.

"We are creating a narrative to show there is a fight against corruption, but behind the scenes, we are just exercising PR stunts to lie to Kenyans," he added.
