Following president Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet reshuffle that saw the sports cabinet secretary Richard Echesa get fired,many Kenyans remain unsatisfied wishing the president fired other cabinets like Balala and Kiunjuri whose records are covered with graft allegations.
Well the president has not responded but the Director of criminal investigations is making some moves.
The DCI wants to interrogate Cabinet Secretaries Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution) Simon Chelgui (Water) and Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture) regarding the Kimwarer and Arror dams.
The three are expected to be questioned by investigators at Mazingara house from next week to answer questions relating to the two projects in Elgeyo Marakwet.
Kinoti has also set his sights on officials from the Attorney General and Solicitor General’s chambers who handled the contracts with the Italian Company CMC before the money was paid.
Githu Muigai was the AG when the contract was signed, while Njee Muturi was the Solicitor General.
“We are being very meticulous and methodical in this complex investigation and we will not leave out anyone who is involved. All those who handled this transaction will be invited to tell what their role was and what they know,” Kinoti told reporters.
This past week, Kinoti’s team grilled National Treasury CS Henry Rotich for three consecutive days in an investigation that has raised political temperatures. Deputy President William Ruto and his allies dismiss the probe as a witch-hunt.
