DCI detectives grilling CS

DCI Headquarters

Water Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui being questioned at DCI headquarters in Nairobi.

Reports have intimated to Pulselive.co.ke that CS Chelugui is being questioned over the stalled Ksh19 billion Itare Dam project.

Reports by the Standard indicated that sleuths had been gathering evidence on the stalled dams project before they summoned the CS.

CS Chelugui arrived at the DCI offices at 7:30am on Wednesday and recorded a long statement on what he knew about the Ksh19 billion project.

Itare dam saga

The Itare project stalled despite billions paid out by the government to the contractor, CMC- di Ravena which is also in the middle of the Arror and Kimware dams saga.

CS Chelugui had said that the remaining works at Itare will be sub-contracted to a third party after the current contractor filed for bankruptcy.

The dam has had an array of challenges ranging from compensation, flawed procurement processes and numerous court cases.

DPP Noordin Haji and DCI George Kinoti had visited the site and declared only 10 per cent of the work had been done.
