DPP’s ouster plot sparks tribal protest from his community

10 June 2015, 10:09 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – A plot by a section of Jubilee MPs to oust the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Keraiko Tobiko has sparked protests from his Maa community legislators who have vowed to defend him.

The 12 legislators drawn from Samburu, Narok, Kajiado and Laikipia counties led by Senator Peter Mositet (Kajiado) and his Narok counterpart, Stephen Ntutu warned the Jubilee MPs against politicizing the fight against corruption by campaigning for the removal of Tobiko from office.

“The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) conducts investigations into corruption, not the DPP who only receives graft files to approve their prosecutions. Politicians should leave Tobiko to do his work independently,” warned Mositet.

He added that the Jubilee MPs questions on the manner Tobiko is dealing with EACC graft cases is an indicator of “corruption fighting back” which will in return stifle its fight.

“Claims that Tobiko is selectively deciding the prosecution of EACC graft files is sinister and aims at undermining him. Questions arising on why some individuals are taken to court and not others affect the fight against corruption,” said Mositet.

Kajiado South MP, Katoo Ole Metito challenged the Jubilee MPs to look into ways of empowering the DPP’s office through budgetary increment for it to expeditiously conclude EACC cases other than bashing Tobiko.

“I personally know Tobiko as a person who values transparency and works independently. The plot to oust him is due to his firm stand on the fight against corruption,” said Metito.

The legislators pledged to support Jubilee government’s commitment in the fight against corruption but maintained that they will oppose some MPs’ move to dismantle independent commissions mandated to fight graft.               

Other MPs present at a press conference include Alois Lentoimanga (Samburu North), Naisula Leesuda (nominated Senator), Maison Leshomo (nominated MP) among others.
