Siaya County Senator James Orengo has urged the Directorate of Criminal Intelligence DCI to summon Deputy President William Ruto to record a statement over the Sh21 billion Arror and Kimwarer dams scandal.
Speaking in Sega town during the launch of ODM party campaigns for the Ugenya Parliamentary by-election, Orengo who is also the senate minority leader and a celebrated senior counsel said DP Ruto has information that could help the DPP recover lost public funds.
DP Ruto, who has maintained that he is not corrupt, came under fire after he claimed that only Sh7 billion and not Sh21 billion as was reported by media and later confirmed by Treasury CS Henry Rotich and DCI Kinoti.
The senator said that the conflicting statements between DP Ruto and Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich is a clear indicator that something fishy is happening behind scenes.
Orengo also said DP Ruto is not above the law and therefore DCI should be free and confident to summon him for grilling.
