Kimwarer Dam Case: Star Newspaper Forced to Apologize Over 'Fake' Story on Ex-CS Rotich

On Tuesday, the Star Newspaper was forced to publicly apologized after writing a misleading story concerning former Finance CS Henry Rotich over Arror Kimwarer Dam case.

The paper had reported that a case file containing documents of former CS Henry Rotich Arror in the Kimwarer dams saga has gone missing.

However, after realizing they had falsely reported, the Star Newspaper was forced to retreat and offer a public apology to the embattled CS.

Instead, The Star reported that the court file missing is the one containing documents challenging the prosecution of managing director Paolo Porcelli of Italian firm CMC Di Ravenna implicated in the same Arror and Kimwarer dam scandals.

The paper was forced to re-edit their earlier story to feature the implemented corrections. The story had elicited heated reactions online, with some alleging that it was a deliberate move to set Rotich off the hook on the alleged corruption cases.

Kenyans however, still awaits to see if the former CS will be implicated or will be let go by the court of law.
