DPP to investigate extra judicial killings countrywide

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has assured the public that his office will work with the police to investigate extra judicial killings at the Coast and other parts of the country.  

The DPP said this when receiving a report on extra judicial killings from Haki Africa, a human rights organization in Mombasa Sunday.

He vowed to prosecute whoever will be linked to the death of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno. Adding that anyone including the Migori County Governor Okoth Obado who has been adversely mentioned, will not be spared if investigations link him to the gruesome murder.

Haji said all those adversely mentioned will be questioned as none is above the law.

The DPP urged Kenyans to be patient and stop speculating since investigations in some cases take time. He warned politicians against discussing the matter and instead allow police to do their work.

The DPP assured Kenyans that all incidences of killings will be investigated as his office plans to set up public enquiries in three weeks’ time.

Sharon Otieno was abducted together with Nation journalist Barrack Oduor on Monday.

The journalist escaped by jumping off a speeding car and was admitted at Aga Khan Hospital in Kisumu. Sharon’s body was later found near Kodera Forest on Wednesday.

Governor Okoth Obado’s Personal Assistant was later arrested and is expected to be arraigned in Court on Monday.

Obado has denied involvement in the murder.
