The development was announced during a departmental meeting held at the Prosecution training institute that brought together senior management team in what Haji said was meant to discuss priority areas.
According to Haji, the priority areas will be key in charting the way forward for the office of the director of public prosecutions over the next three years.
The latest development comes in the wake of intensified war on graft that has seen senior government officials and politicians prosecuted over corruption related charges.
The office of the director of public prosecutions, which was delinked from the Attorney General’s office in 2011 after the promulgation of the 2010 constitution, is tasked with instituting and undertaking prosecution of criminal matters and all other related incidents.
