-The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji, has called for speedy investigations into the circumstances under which documents meant for the prosecution of the case against former Kenya Power bosses went missing.
The original report on faulty transformers by Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has disappeared while in the custody of the power company.
Appearing in court, Senior Assistant DPP, Alexander Muteti, told Chief Magistrate, Felix Kombo, that the documents were crucial to the prosecution's case, and even though they had photocopies, they needed the originals to go ahead with the trial; otherwise they will not have a case.
Ex-Kenya Power bosses, among them Ben Chumo and Ken Tarus, had been arrested over a payment for defective transformers supplied despite the power company having terminated the contract and are out on bond.
And without those crucial files, the corruption cases against them are as good as dead.
