SEE ALSO :MPs plot how they will keep their jobsThe dams scandal, which caused the arrest and suspension of Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and his Principal Secretary Kamau Thugge as well as several officials of the Kerio Valley Development Authority, is now a matter before court. “I am reliably aware that this senator is planning for my impeachment through the county assembly with a view to silencing me after I publicly mentioned to the people of Elgeyo Marakwet that the corruption proceeds of Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal was being used to cause friction in our county,” Tolgos said at the weekend.
Strong defenderThe governor said Murkomen failed to safeguard the interests of residents who would have benefited from the dams. “The senator has now turned into a strong defender of those who are suspected to have misused funds meant for our people,” Tolgos said.
