Monday, July 22, 2019 - The arrest of Treasury CS Henry Rotich and 27 others over the embezzlement of Sh21 billion meant for construction of Kimwarer and Arror dams, has sent shock-waves among corrupt politicians.
The bold move by DPP Noordin Haji sends a clear message to corrupt senior government officials who hitherto thought they were untouchable.
Reacting to the arrests, outspoken Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, lauded DCI boss, George Kinoti and Mr. Haji noting that they have been vindicated from previous attacks by Dr Ruto and his sycophants.
"Congratulations to DCI George Kinoti and DPP Haji for not buckling down under the vicious political attacks that were directed at you by TangaTanga when you started doing investigations into the Arror & Kimwarer dams.
"You have proven that this was not a political witch-hunt & neither was anyone ‘weaponzing’ the fight against corruption for 2022 elections, as Tanga Tanga claimed in numerous political rallies," said the Nyeri Town MP
Early this year, the DP rubbished reports that Sh21 billion had been misappropriated by State officials and termed the investigations as political witch-hunt.
“You've heard that government has lost about Sh21 billion in Kimwarer and Arror dam, which is a flat lie!” said Ruto.
“The money in question is about Sh7 billion and for every coin that has been paid, we have a bank guarantee. No money will be lost because we are a responsible government.”
