48 vehicles stolen from Kimwarer and Arror dams projects recovered by police.


Over the weekend, detectives have seized 48 double-cabin vehicles bought for transport services in the construction of the Kimwarer and Arror dams in Elgeyo Marakwet county but were reportedly diverted to private use.

Some of these vehicles had been diverted to undertake similar works at the stalled controversial Itare Dam in Nakuru County.

According to reports privy to the DCI headquarters, 30 of these vehicles were seized at a parking lot at Mitchell Cotts Building in Nairobi while the rest were traced at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Seizure of the vehicles comes on a day that reports emerged that the files on the two projects had now been taken to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to decide on the way forward.

Sources at DCI intimated that individuals, who include top government officials, could face at least four charges. They include conspiracy to commit an economic crime and that of aiding the commission of an economic crime, abuse of office and negligence of official duty whose punishment is life imprisonment.
