Wednesday May 15, 2019-Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich has surprised Kenyans after he allocated Ksh25.1 billion more to the dam projects in Kenya in the budget proposal for the 2019-2020 financial year.
This is even as Arror and Kimwarer dams in Elgeyo Marakwet sunk a whopping Sh21 billion that had been earlier given to the projects.
The money allegedly ended up in the pockets of few rich people with connections to Deputy President William Ruto.
The Sh25 billion is supposed to be used to pay up the debts that were accrued after the company that was supposed to undertake the projects failed to deliver.
Suppliers who had pumped money into the delivery of goods that were ordered for the Arror and Kimwarer dams complained of non-payment after they fulfilled their obligation of supplying their LPOs.
