Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has cleared Deputy President William Ruto from any involvement surrounding the Kimwarer and Arror dams scandal.
Since the scandal was brought to light, it has been suspected by many that the deputy president was involved in the missing funds allocated to the project. This saw former Treasury CS Henry Rotich and PS Kamau Thugge arrested alongside 26 other government officials.
Speaking in an interview with Anne Kiguta, Haji said that the dams scandal had nothing to do with him. He pointed out that the whole case surrounded the loans taken that were not needed for the projects.

The DPP also explained why the case has taken so long to move forward as he highlighted how other countries are offering new information that helps with the case.
Remember this is a very complex case, we have also applied a lot of Mutual Legal Systems to a number of countries that is the UK and Italy and it is giving us a lot of leads in terms of the funds.
Probably where they have been stashed or who was given what, that is still something that we are refining but the case has been delayed because of the many applications before the High CourtNoordin Haji
