Kimwarer dam cash was funding Rift politics


Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos has revealed the money meant for the construction of Arror and Kimwarer dam s now being used to funding the rift politics.

“They were all over the rift region campaigning for 2022, they undermined me but they have been silenced,” he said.

The scandal saw the sacking of the finance minister Henry Rotich after he was vehemently being mentioned.

President Uhuru appointed Ukur Yatani as the acting National Treasury CS. The Labour and Social Protection CS now hold two dockets until further notice.

Yatani, 52, was sworn into office a month later, after a successful vetting process in the National Assembly. He had previously served as Marsabit Governor from 2013 to 2017.
