Water and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui is currently at DCI headquarters along Kiambu Road for grilling over the Itare dam scandal. The CS was summoned to appear before the DCI on Wednesday morning over his involvement in the scandal, where the country lost close to 35B shillings.
The CS arrived at the DCI Headquarters shortly after 9am after the investigations were re-opened. In February this year, Chelungui distanced himself from the Itare Dam Scanda saying the project was being impemented by implemented by the Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) under the ministry of East African Cooperation and Regional Development and not his ministry.
CS Chelungui, a Baringo politician and a close ally of DP Ruto ran for the Baringo Senatorial seat in 2017 but lost to Senator Gideon Moi before being appointed to the cabinet by President Uhuru.
