Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko is in bullish mood over Anglo Leasing cases, saying they will be thoroughly investigated.
Tobiko said Friday that the case files, which have been handed to his team by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC, will be looked at with vigour and action taken on them.
He added that the cases were critical to Kenyans and that he would assign a team to ensure that seven names provided by the EACC are well looked at and probed.
" I have now constituted an internal team to review the resubmitted
inquiry files and will render my decision as soon as practicable taking
into account the gravity and complexity of the matter," he said in a
Tobiko has called for patience following numerous inquiries of
people seeking to know the identities of the suspects.
" The names are critical to this case and must be kept secret for now, he said.
He said that any early disclosure may lead to injunctions that can hinder
" This is likely to happen again in event of pre-mature disclosure of
names of suspects. I would therefore urge patience until I have reviews
the files and made my decision thereon. Such decision and the reason
therefore will be made public," the DPP cautioned.
The Anglo Leasing cases have brought controversy in the country, especially after president Uhuru Kenyatta was forced into making a payment of KES 1.4 billion.
