President Uhuru Kenyatta nominated National Intelligence Service (NIS) Deputy Director Noordin Mohamed Haji as the new Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). Haji is the first born son to former Defense Minister and current Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji. Uhuru picked Haji from a list of three finalists submitted on Friday, March 9 by a seven-member panel tasked to recruit the next DPP. The office fell vacant after Uhuru nominated the former DPP Keriako Tobiko to the cabinet as Environment Cabinet Secretary President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday, March 13 nominated National intelligence Service (NIS) Deputy Director, Noordin Mohamed Haji to be the next Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Haji was picked from a list of three finalists submitted to the president on Friday, March 9 by a seven member panel tasked to do the recruitment. The three finalist included Senior Counsel Lucy Kambuni, Deputy Chief Public Prosecutor (DCPP)Jacob Ondari and Noordin Haji as presented to President Uhuru. “I have conveyed to the National Assembly the nomination for vetting and approval of Justice Paul Kihara Kariuki as Attorney General; and Noordin Mohamed Haji as Director of Public Prosecutions,” Uhuru stated. Noordin is the son to former Defense Minister and current Garrisa Senator Yusuf Haji. The position fell vacant after Uhuru nominated Keriako Tobiko for the position of Environment Cabinet Secretary. The selection panel said it considered regional balance, ethnic diversity and gender balance in shortlisting the candidates. Without a substantive DPP, suspects of various crimes could not be prosecuted as one of the functions of the DPP is to direct the police to conduct investigations before hauling a suspect to court to be charged. Should the National Assembly reject the DPP nominee, the selection panel will start a fresh recruitment. The seven-member panel consists of Kennedy Kihara (Office of the President), Maryann Njau (Attorney-General’s office) and Ms Lilian Omollo (Public Service ministry). Others are Kagwiria Mbogori (Kenya National Commission on Human Rights), Muli (Law Society of Kenya), Francis Atwoli (Central Organisation of Trade Unions) and Halakhe Waqo (Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission).
