Kenya: DPP Haji Orders Arrest of 28 Individuals in Arror, Kimwarer Dams

National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich on his way to Parliament to present the 2018/2019 budget statement on June 14, 2018.

The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has ordered the arrest of top government and agencies officials over the multibillion-shilling Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal.

Mr Haji said he had sufficient evidence to charge and prosecute individuals involved in the procurement and financing of the Sh60 billion ghost projects.

“In the public interest to prosecute these cases, I have considered that such infractions are crimes against mwananchi individually and collectively and the decision to prosecute is in line with safeguarding the public good,” Mr Haji said on Monday at a press briefing in Nairobi.
