The government is an inch closer to nabbing those behind the loss of 21B shilling loss in the controversial Aror and Kimwarer Dams.The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and his colleague from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti are in Italy to conclude investigations into the multi billion scandal.The public will be able to know names of public officials involved in the dam fraud in coming weeks.
DCI Boss George Kinoti and DPP Noordin Hajji are currently in o discuss the progress of the multi-billion shillings scandal.The Italian government has agreed to help Kenyan government with the investigations which has been going on, away from the public limelight for a number of weeks now.The investigations, which commenced late last year has seen the government put up a multi agency approach including the NIS because of the strong political interference and resistance it has faced.
The Italian investigations are reported to have revealed to the Kenyan government that the financing was never a government-to-government agreement as claimed by Treasury CS Henry Rotich. People involved in the transaction have been traced and how they moved money out of Nairobi established.
Among those DPP Hajji wants to charge are two Cabinet Secretaries, three principal secretaries, a parastatal head and 22 other people.
Previously, the Aror and Kimwarer dam probe roused raw political emotions with DP William Ruto being opposed to the probe and even claiming the amount lost was 7B and not 21B as earlier claimed.He even went further ahead to allude that the DCI and DPP have no legal mandate to investigate economic crimes.
