Transparency International Kenya (TIK) declared on May 26th that they have retracted a leadership integrity award they had conferred to the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji in 2019.
In a statement, the anti-corruption NGO noted that its move was grounded on petitions from different sources that expressed doubts concerning Haji's integrity. The notice signed by TIK's Executive Director Sheila Masinde stated that they decided to withdraw the award after examining numerous claims linking Haji to the withdrawal of high-profile corruption cases which led to the loss of public funds.
"The Judging Panel for the 2019 Integrity Awards comprising some independent commissions, enforcement agencies, professional bodies and civil society organisations, were at that time convicted that your dedication to upholding the rule of law and inspiring public confidence in your office was commendable and worthy of recognition," the body said.
Haji was instructed to return the certificate and plaque he obtained from the award. This comes after TIK had threatened to challenge Haji's appointment as Director General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) in place of Major General (Ret.) Philip Kameru. The body made similar statements in the letter that annulled his award. On Monday, May 22nd, Haji addressed the claims, affirming that Law entitled him to withdraw cases which lacked enough evidence.
"I have become unanimous with withdrawals, but withdrawals are provided under the constitution, and it is a right, and where there is a miscarriage of justice, we must, no matter who that person is in society, that withdrawal must apply if it is justified," Haji stated during the launch of the complaints and case review system, Malalamishi, at Nairobi Remand Prison at the Industrial Area.
So Haji is telling us there was justification in withdrawing Gachagua’s case of stealing over shs 200 million plus some pieces of land? Wacha uninga Haji. Why trying to justify theft?
Siasa mbaya, Maisha mbaya as the old dictator Moi used to say during his heinous regime of late 70's to early 2000's. What a dark time Kenya had during those days. His legacy of corruption continues to bite us to date, and Haji, your a** cannot escape this spell. You , like your friend Matiang'i started of well with the spirit, now you're completely in the flesh. Bure kabisa!
It does appear that TIK was indeed bribing Haji to put anyone mentioned of corruption to jail even if it were politically motivated.
When is justice called justice? If the prosecution lacks sufficient evidence to prosecute a crime, would it be justified to release the suspect? Is that part of justice? Or is just justice to put one in jail even if there’s not enough evidence?
Not sure why the president didn’t clean up the house, can’t continue on with the old murderous corrupt regime!
Samoei alikuwa makamu wa rais kwa muda wa niaka 10. Uhuru alikuwa Rubani mkuu na Samoei alikuwa msaidizi wake.
Kwa hiyo, huwezi kumtenganisha Uhuru na Samoei. Wote waliendesha ndege moja hewani.
Lakini kwa vile Samoei alikuwa akijishughulisha kuendeleza masomo yake mpaka akapata shahada ya uzamivu (PhD, kujenga biashara zake, na kuzurazurura na kutangatanga makanisani kila Jumapili, hakupata nafasi ya kujifunza jinsi ya kutawala nchi ipasavyo. Sababu hizi ziliwafanya Uhuru na Keter kuwaonya wananchi wote wa Kenya wasimpigie Samoei kura 2022. Wananchi hawakusikia mawaidha mazuri kutoka kwa mtu ambaye alimjua Samoei vizuri sana, yaani Ndugu Uhuru. Mpaka Samoei na Rigathi watimuliwe 2027, wananchi wa Kenya wataumia sana kwa njia ngumu sana ya maisha yaliyomo Kenya sasa.
Namshukuru sana Ndugu Panyako kwa kutumia akili aliyopewa na MUUMBAJI MKUU kwa kutoroka UDA mapema kabla meli haijazama.
Haji is the most corrupt DPP Kenya has ever had in the DPP office. The withdrawal of the award 🥇 is well justified. Haji has became a conduit of criminality for his n Kenya as he lets thieves of poor people’s mind net go scott free so he can get political favors from the most corrupt government in the planet earth.
