The multi-million shillings project in Elgeyo-Marakwet were stopped by President Uhuru Kenyatta after the investigations conducted in 2019 exposed the corruption scandals.
The two projects have so far being used by the two leading presidential candidates to lure the hearts of voters in the North Rift region.
While speaking in a rally on Monday at Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet the DP besides claiming that the projects were stopped due to politics, he asked the residents forget about what Raila Odinga said on the dams as he promised to finish them.
"Kwa majaliwa ya Mwenyezi Mungu, tutaendelea na ujenzi wa Kimwarer na Arror dams. These projects will help provide water for irrigation, livestock and electricity generations so that this area can progress," he said.
"Whatever happened is political conmanship and I would like anybody who has a problem with Arror and Kimwarer to tell us. If elected, I will continue with the projects," he added.
This comes days after Mr. Odinga promised to revive the dams while campaigning in Baringo, Elgeyo Marakwet and West Pokot counties.
