Kamau To Face Prosecution While Kambi Cleared Of Corruption Charges

  • The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has directed that Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau be prosecuted over corruption allegations.

    The DPP approved the prosecution in a statement to newsrooms on Thursday evening.

    In the same statement, he rejected the prosecution of Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi, saying there was no sufficient evidence to bring charges against him.

    Tobiko also ordered the closure of Lands CS Charity Ngilu's file, agreeing with the EACC that there is no evidence to charge her.

    The DPP added that Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei can only stand as a witness and not a suspect in a case involving a parastatal under his ministry.

    The four cabinet secretaries are among public servants named in a graft report accused of allegedly being involved in corruption.

    The EACC had on Sunday handed over files to the DPP of the cabinet secretaries for prosecution.
