Kenya Water Secretary Distances Himself From Itare Dam Scandal

NAIROBI

Water Cabinet Secretary (CS) Simon Chelugui has denied reports that taxpayers stand to lose billions in the latest cash cow for tenderpreneurs that involves construction of mega dams. CS Chelugui also denied media reports that he had been summoned by the head of criminal investigations George Kinoti to shed light on the alleged corruption claims. The CS, who was speaking at his Upper Hill office on Thursday, said the projects under scrutiny, with the exception of Itare Dam, are not in his Water and Irrigation docket.
