Lawyers defend under-fire DPP Tobiko

10 June 2015, 15:14 William Korir

Nairobi - Director of Public Prosecutions DPP is going nowhere and politicians must accept it, the Law Society of Kenya has said.

The LSK has warned political leaders against attacking DPP Keriako Tobiko over his recent actions on high profile graft cases.

LSK CEO Apollo Mboya and Kituo Cha Sheria Executive Director Gertrude Angote have cautioned politicians against interfering with constitutional offices.

Mboya and Angote Wednesday termed the attacks as unnecessary, unmerited and malicious.

" The attacks have the potential of interfering with the independence of DPP’s office," they said.

" Political leaders should instead strengthen the institution as it restructures to improve quality of prosecutions and the capacity of prosecutors in the country," they added.

This comes as a section of Jubilee MPs have been allegedly plotting to kick Tobiko out of office, accusing him of mishandling corruption cases hence slowing the president’s fight against corruption.

Led by Starehe MP Maina Kamanda, the leaders claimed that the DPP in cahoots with the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC was hell bent on killing the Jubilee coalition.

The Constitution provides the DPP can only be removed from office through the recommendation of a tribunal appointed on the advice of the Public Service Commission.
