Reports reaching cnyakundi.com are that Blogger Milton Were, among others, have been arrested, a few days after the Blogger linked to blog KenyaToday was freed after DPP Noordin Haji refused to approve their charges.
Also arrested is Brian Keverenge, Chris Octo And Rodney Kigika. They have been detained at various police stations, we can confirm.
According to sources, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti had decried Director Of Public Prosecutions Noordin (DPP) Haji move that has seen him reject many of DCI’s suspicious files.
Two days ago, Bloggers Milton Owere and Jack Okinyi were freed after being abducted and detained by the officers from the DCI with the intent to charge them with the publication of false information contrary to the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act.
According to the state counsel Geoffrey Obiri, the charge sheet did not meet the threshold and merit to warrant prosecution and did not disclose the offence committed.
The details of the story leading to their arrest involved the dirty tenders awarded by KURA with Banisa MP Kulow Maalim being at the centre of the tender scandal with further accusations of failing to meet the tender requirements.
Also, at the core of the scandal was deputy director supply chain management at KURA Mrs Sadia Haji Adam khalifa.
Mrs Sadia Haji Adam khalifa reportedly awarded contracts to a company belonging to Abdisirat Khalif Ali without following the strict guidelines of the tender requirements by KURA.
Abdisirat Khalif Ali is a very close friend to Banisa MP Maalim hence they reportedly manage the company, Tasha Holdings Limited together and get tenders from KURA. The MP’s link to the company has however been kept anonymous.
Additionally, the engineer assigned the project reportedly did very shoddy work and was well protected thus not held accountable.
