On Friday, a letter allegedly from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions emerged online, summoning Deputy President William Ruto over alleged connections to Kimwarer and Arror dam scandals.
In the letter, the DP had been mentioned as one of the key witnesses in the case involving former Treasury CS Henry Rotich and the alleged disappearance of 63 Billion shillings meant for the construction of the two dams.
The alleged letter went ahead to summon Ruto to appear in court as a prosecution witness in the ongoing case. The letter purported to be from the DPP Noordin Haji went ahead to claim that the DP will be notified on when he will appear in the court.
"My office will be notifying you as to the exact date you will be required to appear in court in person to testify on the matter," read part of the alleged letter
However, DPP Noordin Haji through his office has come out to refute the letter, terming it as fake. The office said it had not summoned DP Ruto nor drafted the said letter.
"We wish to state that no such letter has been written in relation to the Arror and Kimwarer case" read part of the DPP's tweet on Twitter.
