Kenya loses 11 billion in the Itare Dam in Nakuru. Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui will be expected to answer questions over the dam. The governor is expected to be detained as he was involved from dams' onset. 


Kenya is staring at a possible loss of Ksh.11 billion if the construction of the Ksh.28 billion Itare Dam in Nakuru is terminated.


The dam which has been at the heart of controversy has stalled for several months after a firm which won the tended went under.


This was after, an Italian firm, CMC Di Ravenna, the main contractor which won the tender in 2014 filed for bankruptcy last year causing the multibillion shilling dam project to stall indefinitely.


It Dam that has already used up Ksh.11 billion since construction began in April 2017 now remains an incomplete project.


The contractor is nowhere to be seen and the government is on the verge of terminating the project altogether.


"We have reached a point of breaking or moving forward,” said Water CS Simon Chelugui.


The dam projects in Kenya has been milking zones or cash cow projects. It is expected that the government could lose more from the other dams.
