Nairobi - Barely a year after taking office, Attorney-General Githu Muigai on Sunday spoke of frustrations, as he said he was not being consulted by ministers and some heads of state corporations, which often results in conflicting and unconstitutional decisions being made by the officers.
Daily Nation reports that the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko also sighted the recent ruling that lifted the ban on the Mombasa republican Council (MRC) and the freeing of suspected terrorists on bail, saying the courts should protect both the spirit and letter of the law.
Tobiko went on to add that the courts in granting bail should strike a balance between the rights of an accused against the wider interest of the public including in particular safety and security.
