Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Onesmus Kipchumba Murkomen has been arrested on fraud and corruption charges over the multibillion-shilling Arror and Kimwarer dams projects in Elgeyo-Marakwet. This happens hours after the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered for the arrest of the flamboyant senator.
Murkomen was arrested in Elgeyo Marakwet , and is being taken to the DCI headquarters for further interrogation. This has escalated tension in Elgeyo Marakwet as youths barricade roads in the area.
“Officers have managed to arrest the senator and are already on their way to Nairobi DCI headquarters. Political threats and sideshows will not stop my office from heeding to the public interest by prosecuting those implicated in the dams scandal” DPP Haji confirmed on phone.
