Nakuru County Water Director Johnson Njuguna was also arraigned in court over the dam tragedy for neglect for failing to present an environmental impact assessment report of the killer dam.

Prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki asked the court to  issue a warrant of arrest for six other people who have not been charged as directed by DPP Noordin Haji.
