Outgoing Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji is the best candidate to succeed Spymaster Philip Kameru.
Despite several hurdles placed on his way, Noordins tenure as the DPP has seen the Country’ Prosecution Department achieve several milestones.
Since last year’s election, the DPP withdrew several political instigated cases including the ones that were facing Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and several politicisms.
Western Youth Cuacus leader Moses Masinde lauded the DPP for ending “political persecution” in Kenya.
Speaking during the weekend, Haji while responding to the claims of withdrawal of cases, argued that he is entitled in law to withdraw any case where he feels there is no sufficient evidence.
“I have become unanimous with withdrawals but withdrawals are provided under the constitution and it is a right, and where there is a miscarriage of justice we must no matter who that person is in society, that withdrawal must apply if it is justified,” said Haji.
The DPP was speaking during the launch of the complaints and case review system at Nairobi Remand Prison in Industrial Area.
The online system is meant to make it easier for anyone to file a complaint or review their case and also help in decongesting prisons in the country.
Several Civil society members are opposed to the rise of Haji but Masinde said Haji is one of the best professionals the Country has.
