Appearing before Milimani anti-corruption court on Tuesday September 20th, 2022, a prosecution witness claimed that Uhuru approved the construction of both Dams while also serving as the deputy prime minister in the late Mwai Kibaki’s government. 

The witness,  who served at the Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) Adhoc Technical & Evaluation Tendering Committee, claimed that Uhuru signed the conceptualization and implementation papers of the project and gave the green light for advertisement for bidding.

Other signatories of the documents presented before the court included those signed by former cabinet minister for Regional Development Fred Gumo and his Security counterpart, the late John Michuki.

The court also allowed the witness to testify against  former Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and KVDA Managing Director David Kimosop.

According to the office of the  Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP), the eyewitness told the court that Rotich and Kimosop coordinated to hand the tender to companies that had not expressed interest in the big project.

“She told Chief Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi how the accused persons conspired to float tenders for the 2 projects and awarded CMC di Ravenna- Itinera Joint Ventures even though the company did not bid for the projects,” read the statement by the ODPP. More
