Kenyans woke up on Tuesday morning to the news of the Cabinet Secretary of National treasury (finance) Henry Rotich being grilled at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi.
Kenyans asked President Kenyatta to sack the Cabinet Secretary over the 'irregular' payments to the companies associated with the Arror and Kimwarer dams.
Taking to his twitter handle, former 2013 Presidential candidate Mwalimu Abduba Dida called on the immediate suspension of the Cabinet Secretary on compulsory leave pending an investigation into the matter.
"The Deputy Prime Minister of Kenya, Henry Rotich?! Can it get any worse? Anyway, he must be sent on compulsory leave pending the outcome of the investigations," Tweeted Dida.
Dida's remarks come barely hours after the CS was grilled shortly after the sacking of the sports, culture and heritage cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa.
The Treasury CS was grilled by the Directorate of criminal investigation for close to over six (6) hours over the controversy surrounding the Kimwarer and Arror dams construction and payments as the war on corruption escalates.
The Kimwarer and Arror dams have brought the heated debates to the country with the political leaders from the right valley accusing the 'cartels' of trying to scuttle the major investment that would change the livelihood of people of Rift valley for good.
