Wednesday July 24, 2019-The careers of Treasury CS Henry Rotich, his PS Kamau Thugge and and several others is as good as over after their arrest on Monday.
This is after DPP Noordin Haji, wrote to the Head of Public Service, Joseph Kinyua, ordering their suspension from Government for facing prosecution over the multi-billion-shilling Kimwarer and Arror dams scandal in which officials conspired to steal over Ksh17 billion.
Haji, who said the move will signify the renewed fight against corruption, added that more charges will be brought as investigations continue locally and abroad.
“Individuals already found to have played a part in the scandal will have to leave office immediately.
“We are continuing with the investigations with the help of investigative agencies from Italy and the United Kingdom, which will result in more charges,” Haji stated.
On Monday, the DPP ordered the prosecution of 28 individuals, among them officials from the National Treasury, Ministry of East Africa Community, National Environment Management Authority, Kerio Valley Development Authority and Inspectorate of State Corporations.
