The second President of the Republic of Kenya Daniel Torotich Arap Moi has been dragged into the Arror and Kimwarer Dam scandal.
The former President Moi is linked with a piece of evidence which was unmasked by the team of Investigators.
DCI Kinoti is probing how 28 vehicles bought using funds meant for the construction of the dams were mysteriously transferred to two privately owned warehouses — one of which is associated with former President Daniel Arap Moi — before they were registered.
The team of investigators have established that 160 Million which was meant for the construction of the dams was splashed on vehicles. The money was paid Toyota Kenya for 45 vehicles, including Prados, Toyota Fortuners, Corollas, Hiace vans and pickup trucks.
But only 17 of the vehicles were registered in the name of CMC di Ravenna, the bankrupt Italian firm hired to build the two dams. CMC di Ravenna has since filed for insolvency in Italy.
Somehow, 18 of the vehicles were whisked away to a bonded warehouse on Mombasa Road, Nairobi, owned by logistics firm Mitchell Cotts.
The other 10 were taken to another warehouse at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport owned by Siginon Freight Kenya, a logistics firm associated with the former President according to the leading Newspaper;Daily Nation.
Detectives have so far traced and impounded 37 of the vehicles, which are currently at the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road.
Of the detained vehicles, nine are registered in the name of CMC di Ravenna but detectives insist they are part of the investigations.
But the DCI did not confirm whether the vehicles at the Mitchell Cotts and Siginon warehouses have since been registered or whether the individuals behind their movement have been found.
