CS Rotich, PS Thugge released on Sh15 million bail

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and his Permanent Secretary Kamau Thugge have been released on a cash bail of Sh15 million or a bond of Sh50 million.

The court has also ordered the two to stay away from their office not unless accompanied by detectives. This is because the National Treasury is a crime scene.

The two are among 10 high profile officials who were arraigned in court on Tuesday over corruption in the over Sh19 billion dam scandal.

On Monday, the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered for the arrest of 28 individuals. They were accused of committing illegalities in the awarding of the Arror and Kimwarer dams tender to a broke Italian firm, CMC Di Ravenna.

“The investigations established that the government officials flouted all procurement rules and abused their oath of office to ensure the scheme went through. Many procurement procedures as stipulated by the law for such projects were ignored and the law was circumvented to ensure that CMC Di Ravenna got the contract,” DPP Haji told journalists.
