Petition E538 of 2023

The Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) and other organizations have sued prosecutors Geoffery Obiri and Oliver Mureithi, accusing them of mishandling the Sh63 billion Arror and Kimwarer dams' case, citing prosecutorial misconduct. On December 14, 2023, an anti-corruption court acquitted former Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Henry Rotich and eight co-defendants of fraud-related charges related to the troubled construction of two dams. The court criticized the prosecution's handling, noting a lack of diligence. Only eight out of 49 witnesses were presented, with 41 testimonies going unchallenged, suggesting a possible strategy for a prosecution-led acquittal.
