Is Henry Rotich a Sacrificial Lamb?
Bishop Christopher Rutto of the Anglican Diocese of Eldoret challenged former CS Henry Rotich to reveal other people he believes were involved in the Arror-Kimwarer scandal.
The clergyman argued that such a large amount of money could not have disappeared without the involvement of people higher up the chain of command.
The clergyman appeared to echo the sentiments of Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi who claimed that Rotich was used and dumped in the scandal that put a stop to the CS’s successful career in public service.
Rotich was charged in court with corruption, along with dozens of other suspects from the Treasury and the Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA).
Rotich stepped aside after he was charged with corruption in the Sh 69 billion Kimwarer-Arror Dam Scandal. This is the first time that men of the cloth from the North Rift region are throwing in their opinions in support of the embattled former Cabinet Secretary.
Bishop Rutto believes that there are other undisclosed beneficiaries of the Kimwarer billions. The bishop was addressing the media at St Matthews ACK church, Eldoret on Sunday.
According to the Bishop, senior people in government must have been aware of the disappearance of the money and that Rotich should come clean so that everyone who was involved faces the full force of the law.
The Bishop lamented lack of unity in the government, aksing what happened to the popular campaign slogan ‘tuko pamoja.’
“Where has that unity gone,” he asked, and told the government to focus on serving people instead of wrangling and infighting.
He also asked the National and County governments to resolve differences of opinion amicably.
