James Orengo reacts after the Anti-Corruption Court granted the application of the Director of the Public Prosecution (DPP) to withdraw a graft case of Ksh 7.3 billion placed against Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.
The Siaya Governor reacts a few days after former Prime Minister Raila Odinga faulted the Judiciary and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji for withdrawing graft cases in quick succession including the Deputy President's graft case.
The Director Of Public Prosecution argued that there was no full disclosure of evidence in the case by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) hence his decision to drop charges against Gachagua and his co-accused.
Consequently, James Orengo slammed the judgment saying that Rigathi Gachagua's graft case was withdrawn because he is the Deputy President.
He claimed that if Rigathi Gachagua was the High in Command, the graft case would not have been withdrawn. He goes ahead and claims this to be the abuse of the Criminal Justice system.
