Detectives probing the Sh39 billion military arms on Friday raided the office of the deputy president William Ruto and the houses belonging to former sports minister Rashid Achesa in a bid to search crucial documents.
In the raid that is said to have been conducted in utmost secrecy on Friday, detectives checked into the building, which houses Deputy President William Ruto, to view the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage for the period of interest to them.
Detectives are also said to be keen to rope in all the ring leaders of the scheme as well as to corroborate the evidence adduced by the victims.
Mr Achesa among three other people were nabbed by DCI detectives after they duped a Poland national of the money.
Details emerged that ex-CS Echesa’s crew had posed themselves as military officials when contacting the foreigner for the first time.
On Saturday, the DP was furious with the turn of events implicating his office. The news that his office was a place of interest to detectives also unfurled a wave of criticism by his political rivals demanding he tells his side of the story.
Lugari MP Ayub Savula yesterday urged the DP to record a statement on the events that took place in his office.
“I’m ready and willing to escort the DP on Monday to the DCI to record a statement. This is the second-highest office in this country and he should clear the air on this matter. A meeting of such events as the one alluded to cannot be held without the knowledge of the owner of the office,” said Savula.
