The former CS for treasury Henry Rotich failed to stop DPP from proceeding with the Ksh63 billion Arror and Kimwarer dams' scandal case. This happened after the high court claimed that he had no justifiable reasons to convince the court to dismiss the case. Justice Ester Maina dismissed the requests of the CS to terminate the case, an act that shows possibilities of the CS serving a jail term if found guilty.
The CS is facing a total of 21 charges among them being conspiracy to defraud the government, the willful failure to comply with procurement rules and abuse of office. He is also facing charges of financial misconduct and engaging in projects without prior planning.
Rotich had filed the petition challenging his prosecution arguing that he was being sacrificed since he was not the one who negotiated the contracts for building the dams of Aror and Kimwarer dams in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
