DCI GEORGE KINOTI assures Kenyans that two Cabinet Secretaries and a Principal Secretary will go to Kamiti over Sh 21 billion phantoms dam scandal

Monday April 7, 2019-Detectives from Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have said they have established how two Cabinet Secretaries and a principal secretaries looted Sh 21 billion during the ghost construction of Arror and Kimwarer dams in Elgeyo Marakwet.

In an interview with a local daily over the weekend, the detectives, who requested a condition of anonymity, said they have narrowed down the probe for arrest and prosecution to the CS who pushed for the Sh200 million bribe as well as another Cabinet member.

The other CS is said to have been among the top government officials who also applied a lot of pressure for the signing of the documents for the release of more cash from the Treasury.

The CS told his Principal Secretary that there was Sh200 million cut for them if he would sign crucial documents that would have unlocked Sh4 billion more from the National Treasury.

At this point, Sh21 billion had already been paid out by the Treasury as a down payment to Italy based CMC di Ravenna, which was contracted to do the two projects.

However, the PS turned down the offer and insisted that due process would be followed before he could sign the crucial documents.

The PS is now regarded as a key witness in the case being firmed up by the DCI against his boss, the CS.
