Monday July 22, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to name an acting Treasury Cabinet Secretary following the arrest of Henry Rotich on Monday.
Rotich and his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge were arrested on Monday over misappropriation of Sh 21 billion during the construction of Arror and Kimwarer dams in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
The two are in trouble after billions went missing in the project whose contract was assigned to Italian construction company CMC Di Ravenna.
Now since the two will be arraigned in court tomorrow, Uhuru will have been left with no option than replacing them.
According to impeccable sources within the presidency, Uhuru wants to name Transport Principal Secretary, Esther Koimett as the new Treasury Cabinet Secretary.
Koimett is a daughter to late former Cabinet Minister, Nicholas Kipyator Biwott.
