Devolution CS Wamalwa Grilled By DCI Over Dams Saga

Devolution Cabinet Secretary (CS), Eugene Wamalwa, was brought in for addressing over the Arror and Kimwarer dam embarrassment at the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) central station on Thursday.

DCI manager, George Kinoti, is in quest for reality with respect to claims that some administration authorities got rewarding kickbacks from temporary workers.

Farming CS, Mwangi Kinjuri, is additionally set to show up independently to address at the DCI central station on Kiambu street at around 10.30 a.m.

Remarkably, both CSs had recently served in the Ministry of Water.

Reports indicated that contractors handed out the large sums of money to top government officials in order to get the tenders for the building of the dams.

The latest interrogation of a high profile CS comes after a team led by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji reportedly visited Italy where they unearthed details regarding the dams scandal.

Despite various reports indicating that Kenyan taxpayers had lost Ksh21 billion in the latest scandal to rock the country, Deputy President (DP) Dr William Ruto and Treasury CS Henry Rotich have insisted that only Sh7.8 billion has been paid out as guaranteed advance payment.

CS Rotich was questioned extensively by DCI investigators for 4 days over the course of last week, while Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) Managing Director, David Kimosop was grilled for two days.

The three-day grilling of CS Rotich, is reported to have brought in so much information, that the DPP’s office came out and asked the public for more time as they cast their net wider.

“I have noted the shocking magnitude of the amounts involved and the range of parties that are of interest to the investigations. This has in turn made investigations complex requiring investigators to cover a wide range of areas,” stated DPP Noordin Haji last Friday.

The Arror and Kimwarer dams were being implemented through KVDA, with the National Land Commission (NLC) having gazetted 6,000 acres to be acquired for the projects.

CS Eugene Wamalwa released a statement after his interrogation at the DCI headquarters.

“Today I recorded a statement at DCI on Arror/Kimwarer dams probe where I clarified that they were not under my jurisdiction. I urge Kenyans to support the ongoing investigations and the fight against corruption by our agencies,” he stated on his twitter page
