The grilling report is now with the Director of Public Prosecutions George Kinoti, who will then decide the fate of the CS and several other senior officials from Treasury, Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) and a number of suppliers.

Among the questions that the CS was asked is why billions of shillings were paid to an Italian firm before the two projects commenced.

He was also questioned on the signing off of the projects with a company that is now grappling with financial constraints.

Rotich was questioned on how and why payments were made without project designs, bill of quantity and due diligence.
