According to the DPP, the senior government officials flouted procurement rules and committed illegalities in the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal.

However, majority of Kenyans who have taken to the social media to express their lack of trust claim that the DPP move is just a PR stunt as the top government officials are likely to get away scot-free in the end.

Some Kenyans also believe that the move is meant to divert the attention from Ekuro Aukot’s the Punguza Mzigo Initiative. On  Thursday IEBC announced that ‘Punguza Mzigo’ Initiative pushing for a constitutional amendment met the required threshold of at least one million signatures.

On the other side, a few Kenyans took a step to congratulate Haji for his bold move in the on war against corruption while arguing him not to leave any stone unturned to have all the stolen government resources returned.
