Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has again accused The Director of Public Prosecution of deliberately killing the Dam Projects to satisfy the vested short term political interests.

Speaking after meeting with his clients who is among the 28 implicated in the  in the Sh21 billion Kimwarer and Arror scandal, Murkomen has stated that DPP and DCI have no enough evidence to warrant prosecution but are serving the interests of some politicians which in the long run sabotage the project meant for the people Elgeyo Marakwet.

“I can see the deliberate injustice that is being meted on the people of Elgeyo Marakwet County by killing these projects just to satisfy short term political interests,” Murkomen stated.

The outspoken senator has further accused The Investigative agencies of lying to Kenya that they are fighting corruption, but in the real sense the agencies are just playing Public Relations (PR) stunts.

“What I have seen is that we are not fighting corruption but rather lying to Kenyan citizens that we are fighting corruption; in reality, we are just exercising PR stunts given the evidence on the ground/ games behind the scenes,” Murkomen claimed.

Furthermore Murkomen has condemned DPP swift act of arresting suspects but slowing down on pressing charges. Murkomen has said that he was expecting his client to be presented to court Monday afternoon, but Officers at the DCI Head Quarters postponed till Tuesday.

Arrests are so swift in this country but when you ask for charges to be preferred then it takes long; they have had these persons since morning and we have asked the DCI to charge them in court but are not ready to do so this afternoon,” Murkomen complained.

This is but the second time Murkomen is speaking to the press after order of arrest was issued. In the first instance Murkomen stated that the whole arrest thing is based on false information.

Treasury CS Henry Rotich and his PS Kamau Thugge surrendered to DCI Head Quarters after DPP Noordin Haji called for their arrest over the Kimwarer and Arror dams scandal.

Those mentioned are accused of offences, including conspiracy to defraud and the abuse of office.

They are also accused of failure to comply with applicable procedures and guidelines relating to procurement.
