The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has ordered the arrest of Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge over alleged links to the multi-billion Kimwarer and Aror dams scandal.

Haji on Monday approved the arrest of the two senior government officials alongside Dr Susan Jemutai Koech (East African Community) and Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) Managing Director David Kimosop.

“After analyzing the evidence gathered by the Director of Criminal Investigations, I am satisfied that economic crimes were committed and I have therefore approved their arrests and prosecutions,” the DPP said while speaking to journalists in Nairobi.
