The Ksh.63billion Kimwarer and Aror dam case have taken a new twist. The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji dropped charges against Kamau Thugge and Susan Koech who are now state witnesses.
The law allows the DPP to withdraw a criminal case at any time during the trial for varied reasons. The Arror-Kimwarer dam suspects had been accused of conspiracy to commit an economic crime, improperly conferring a benefit, abuse of office, committing an offense of financial misconduct, engaging in a project without prior planning, and failing to comply with rules and regulations relating to the management of public finances. They however later entered into an agreement with the ODPP to have these charges dropped in exchange for being state witnesses.
It is evident, the ODPP in collaboration with other anti-graft agencies is exploring multiple avenues to fight graft. These measures are leaving no room for corrupt suspects in the country. The anti-graft task force is determined to bring the graft lords to book.
