Monday July 1, 2019-Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has hit out at those who plundered at least Sh21 billion meant for Arror and Kimwarer dams, saying they belong to jail.
Speaking yesterday while on tour of Elgeyo Marakwet, the ODM leader dismissed Deputy President William Ruto's claim that only Sh7 million meant for the projects in Elgeyo Marakwet County was lost.
He noted that the plans for the two mega dams were initiated under the Grand Coalition Government led by former President Mwai Kibaki.
According to Raila, the two dams were to cost a total of Sh5 billion following a feasibility study and wondered why it jumped to Sh63 billion under Uhuru and Ruto’s administration.
“It has now been allocated Sh63 billion and Sh21 billion has been lost yet no work has been done,” he told a gathering at Chebara Primary School during a thanksgiving ceremony following the retirement of Ruth Kiptoo, mother in-law of Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny.
The former PM called for the arrest and prosecution of all those involved in the scandal.
