Former Kerio Valley Development Authority Managing Director (KVDA) David Kimosop has been arrested over the Arror-Kimwarer multibillion dam scandal.

Detectives arrested him on Friday morning at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) as he returned into the country from Tanzania.

He joins a list of over 20 government officers, including former Treasury CS Henry Rotich and his PS Kamau Thugge, who were arrested and charged over the scandal.

Kimosop was the only big-name who was yet to be arrested over the Ksh63 billion scam.

The former KVDA boss was fired in May following his alleged involvement in major scandals, and Francis Kipkoech appointed in his place.
