Kimwarer and Arror Dams Allocated More Ksh25B

Kimwarer and Arror dams have been allocated more Ksh25.1B by finance CS Henry Rotich.

The money is supposed to be used to pay up the debts that were accrued after the company that was supposed to undertake the projects failed to deliver.

Suppliers who had pumped money into the delivery of goods that were ordered for the Arror and Kimwarer dams complained of non-payment after they fulfilled their obligation of supplying their LPOs.

The two dams have been subject to scrutiny after taxpayers allegedly lost Ksh21 billion that was paid to the contractor before the commencement of the project.

The company that was awarded the contract, CMC Di Ravenna, is said to have been declared bankrupt in its native country Italy and had also accrued some loans in the country.

As for other dams, the government intends to ensure completion of the projects.

Other controversial allocations in the budget as per a report were Ksh7.9 billion to the collapsed Galana-Kulalu irrigation project.

The viability of the project was questioned after the Ksh7.2 million model farm failed to meet the projected number of bags of maize.

The National Youth Service has received an extra Ksh6 billion budget that did not exist before in its allocations.

This comes even after many unanswered questions over the expenditure and the scandals that have riddled the NYS.

The government intends to spend Ksh2.7 trillion in this coming financial year rising from last year’s budget by at least Ksh252 billion.
