    LSK President: DPP Noordin Haji must explain dropped corruption cases.

    Published on

    On Thursday, October 13, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) questioned Noordin Haji, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), on the dismissal of corruption charges.

    In a press conference held in Nairobi, LSK President Eric Theuri questioned the rationale for the sudden removal of cases without providing a thorough explanation.

    If the cases are dropped due to a lack of evidence to support the charges, the DPP must take accountability and explain how the decision to prosecute was made in the first place.

    Theuri remarked.

    The omission of the DPP to offer an explanation, in Theuri’s view, suggests that the cases were abandoned to clear some of the suspects appointed to various positions by the government.

    Cabinet Secretary candidate Aisha Jumwa was accused of collecting Ksh19 million in illicit campaign contributions while serving as a member of parliament for Malindi. On Wednesday, October 12, the DPP requested that the prosecution against her be dropped.

    The DPP’s office took action to dismiss the case against ex-Samburu governor Moses Kasaine Lenolkulal, who had been accused for embezzling Ksh84 million.

    The DPP also dismissed charges against two ex-heads of a regional state corporation.

    Agriculture CS candidate Mithika Linturi is another prominent figure whose case was dismissed when the accuser withdrew.
