Judges, Magistrates and Prosecutors must be serious in fighting corruption in the country! They are letting down HAJJ and KINOTI


On Tuesday, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss, George Kinoti, revealed that some Judges, Magistrates and Prosecutors are hampering the ongoing anti-graft drive in the country.

Kinoti, who was speaking at a public function in Nairobi, said some criminals and crooks are getting away with crimes because of corrupt Judges, Magistrates and Prosecutors.

For the last 4 months, Kenya has been on an upward trajectory in fighting corruption and the Executive which is on the front line in fighting the vice, is receiving accolades from as far as United States and United Kingdom.

However, some rogue criminals in the name of Prosecutors, Judges and Magistrates are derailing the anti corruption train by issuing orders that may delay the cases for years.
A case in point is the corruption case facing former Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, who is accused of stealing Sh 213 million when he was the city boss.

According to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, it has lined up 27 witnesses to testify against Kidero when the case begins hearing in May, 2019.

This is a total miscarriage of justice because Kidero may use the time to interfere with evidence and intimidate witnesses as it is normal in the country.

Former British Prime Minister, Sir William Ewart Gladstone, once said “Justice delayed is justice denied”
