Tough Call

President Uhuru Kenyatta during a past address at State House

President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered the immediate cancelation of the Kimwarer Dam project.

This was after the Kimwarer Dam project which was found to be technically and financially not feasible by the Technical Committee.

The announcement was made on Wednesday after President Kenyatta received a report on Kimwarer and Arror Dam Projects from the Technical Committee he formed following the scandal that rocked the two dams.

Uhuru had asked the Committee to assess the viability of the two dam projects and report back to him within 30 days.

Arrow Approved

After assessing the two dam projects the Technical Committee found that Kimwarer Dam was overpriced and the project is neither technically nor financially viable.

According to the committee, no current reliable feasibility study had been conducted on the dam project.

However, the Arror Multipurpose Dam Project was found to be economically viable but noted that it was overpriced.

President Kenyatta ordered for the immediate commencement of the implementation of the Arror Multipurpose Dam project after accepting the report from the committee.

He further directed to have the new design components and cost rationalization plan which will cost Ksh15.4 billion instead of the initial cost which was Ksh28.3 billion.
