The Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji has finally spoken on the KEMSA Scandals. In his message Haji stated that he will not go to court and charge individuals for administrative breeching. He said that there must be enough evidence of the money lost and that the evidence should show that it is not a mere administrative oversight and lapses.
Noordin Haji has claimed that if a file is brought for convenience of the public for him to charge, he will not do it and that he is willing to loose his job for that because he is not ready to lie to Kenyans. He said that for him to prosecute culprits of individuals mentioned in the KEMSA scandal, then he must have a file that has evidence.
Haji clearly stated that the KEMSA file is not yet ready as it was forwarded to EACC. However he said that they are going to do a good job once it is ready. He said that EACC and his office have competent as well as trained individuals to undertake the assignment.
Haji added that since he took oath in office there has been a recovery of 2.9 billions on graft cases. He claimed that the money usually goes to the Treasury but there is an upcoming bill which will allow the Office Director of Public Prosecutions to monitor how the funds are being used. David Murathe is one of those individuals who were mentioned in the KEMSA Scandals and what Haji has said it could mean that it may take a longer time to have the evidence and prosecute him and others.
