Former Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge and other accused persons intended to fraud the government more than sh 80 billion through inflating Arror and Kimwarer multi-purpose dam projects.
A story published by People Daily Newspaper states that investigations established that Malebe, Rotich, Thugge and others conspired to commit the offences.
The DPP was responding to a suit filed by Richard Malebe, an advocate who the prosecution alleges is a director of CMC Di Ravenna Kenya branch, which was involved in the over Sh51 billion Kimwarer and Arror dams’ scandal.
In an affidavit by Thomas Tanui, a detective with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the project waspurely for purposes of looting public funds.
“The said projects were concocted purely for purposes of looting public funds but as they were not part of the National Water Master plan, they could only be made possible with the cooperation and conspiracy of the accused persons working for a common unlawful purpose,” claimed Tanui.
The court will deliver its ruling on April 29.
