Tobiko revives corruption case against Kenya Pipeline bosses
17 February 2014, 12:40
Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko says he will appeal a High court ruling that saw a graft case against former Kenya Pipeline boss Jerry Okungu dropped.
The case against Okungu was thrown out early this month by High Court judges George Odunga and Wesley Korir, who blames Tobiko of selective justice towards Okungu.
Okungu and former company secretary Mary Kiptui had been charged over the sale of company assets, which included a set of company staff houses.
The two judges, however ruled that the prosecutor had no right to charge the two without also charging others who were not on the court and were deemed influential towards the sale of the houses.
“It is patently wrong for the two judges to purport to determine for the
DPP who gets to be charged with an offence and who serves as a
prosecution witness,” Tobiko argued when announcing his plans.
