Pipeline Managing Director Joe Sang and former NHIF CEO Simeon ole Kirgotty have been arrested as crackdown on graft suspects resumes.

The arrest by DCI officers comes just days ahead of a scheduled parliamentary grilling by MPs over allegations of fraudulent tendering and questionable payments totaling well over Ksh.2 billion.

The MPs further claim the parastatal has been draining tax payers money through the pipes following the latest auditor general’s report on the construction of the 470km pipeline from Mombasa to Nairobi.

Earlier this week Sang announced he would be leaving the company even as the KPC board called for an urgent internal audit in the procurement process.
