A contractor who designed the controversial Arror Dam is claiming Sh.140 million from treasury for delays in settling his bills.
This despite the fact that the designs, delivered in 2013 are not being used in the works. The total contract sum was Sh.900million but details are emerging that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations may have been duped about the availability of the design.
Investigations by Uzalendo News has unearthed shocking revelations that an Irarian firm NTN designed the Arror dam at a cost of sh.900million.
The design which was allegedly delivered to Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) in 2013, but the company is still owed sh.120million.
This information was not availed to the DCI…ostensibly because it was altered for reasons Uzalendo News could not ascertain.
The detailed designs took 2 years to construct. So far, three ministers namely Henry Rotich, Mwangi Kiunjuri and Eugene Wamalwa have recorded statements over the dams. So far, the Government has paid out sh.27billion.
The dam designer is currently claiming Sh.110million in interest over the same.
