Nakuru County commissioner Joshua Nkanatha is on the receiving end after the Senate ad hoc committee probing the Solai Dam tragedy that claimed 47 lives  urged CS Fred Matiang’i to suspend him for ‘complicity.’

According to the committee’s chairman Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, it is questionable why the commissioner and other administrations officers are spearheading the compensation of the victims on behalf of the dam owner.

The Senator said the move is wrong as it is the same administrators who are probing the matter. 

The Senate committee also rubbished the owner’s offer a Sh100,000 indemnity to victims.
