Nairobi – The office of the Director of Public
Prosecutions has strongly defended itself against accusations that it is
lax in investigating cases involving high profile public officials.
Speaking during the opening of a workshop for prosecutors in East
Africa, Senior Deputy Public Prosecutor Dorcas Oduor said they had
handled many high profiles cases and that all matters are thoroughly
scrutinised and dealt with as stipulated in the Constitution.
“What would seem to the public as high profile cases or what would
seem to the public as cases of interest are not necessarily cases of
public interest. There is a difference. Our office has taken very
seriously cases of high public officials and cases of high public
interest but within the legislative framework,” she said.
