  • DPP Noordin Haji, on Thursday, unveiled his new scheme to prevent people charged with corruption from traveling abroad.

    Haji, who had been holding consultative meetings with ambassadors of various western countries, wants them to bar such Kenyans from accessing their countries.

    Haji alongside, DCI boss George Kinoti and EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak met 11 envoys on Tuesday before leaving for Italy on official duty.

    The three also met Italian ambassador to Kenya Alberto Pieria and discussed on fighting graft and related crimes.

    “The discussions centered on possible collaboration between Italy, EACC, DCI and ODPP on capacity building, mutual legal assistance and investigation in combating corruption,” disclosed Mbarak.

    The DPP is also expected to share a list of persons charged with corruption with the view of restricting them from leaving the country.

    The teams have been visiting various foreign countries to push for cooperation and collaboration in the war on corruption.

    Countries such as the UK and USA already pledged to help in the war on graft.

    In their trip to Italy, top government sleuths went in search of a means that could finally lead to the prosecution of prominent persons implicated in the loss of at least Ksh21 billion, meant for the construction of two vital dams.

    Haji and Kinoti, who arrived in Italy on Wednesday, are reported to have been armed with crucial evidence of the fraud, which they intended to present to the Italian authorities.
