Attorney General Githu Muigai and former Solicitor General Njee Muturi are scheduled to shed light on the advisory opinion they gave over the deal between Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) and the now bankrupt Italian CMC Di Ravenna.

KVDA reportedly gave misleading information that they had acquired 400 hectares of land from the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) in exchange for 570 hectares of private land, an assertion KFS board dismissed.

Detectives say that Sheria House — through Githu and Njee — issued an advisory against KVDA entering into a loan facility agreement with CMC di Ravenna.

Trade and Industrialisation Cabinet secretary Peter Munya, who served as the East Africa Community CS that is also expected to shed more light on the same.

Sunday saw DCI boss George Kinoti and DPP Noordin Haji visit the Itare Dam Site. The duo were met with a rude shock when they realized that no work was going on at the site despite the fact that the government already coughed out Sh11 billion out of Sh38.5 billion budgeted for the dam.

“There is nothing going on at the grounds. It is just a bushy vast land that serves as grazing ground. Yes, indeed the DCI and DPP were on the ground,” said a senior detective privy to the ongoing investigations.

National Treasury Cabinet secretary Henry Rotich, Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture), KVDA managing director David Kimosop and KVDA Procurement Manager Paul Kiprotich have since been grilled by detectives and the files forwarded to DPP for review.
