United Kingdom’s government has vowed to see the investigations into the Arror and Kamwarer dam scandals to the very end no matter the price.
In a meeting with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for EnglandÂ and Wales Mr Max Hill at Serena Hotel on Thursday, DPP Noordin Haji revealed that the detectives from UK were already on the case and helping with the investigations.
â€śThey (Britain) help us in almost all matters: reviewing cases, undertaking financial and forensic analysis, capacity building and joint training, not only for ODPP but also other offices,â€ť stated the Haji.
Hill assured Haji that the UK had set aside an agency that was ready to follow up on any case no matter the geographical boundaries or high profile people that might be connected with the scandal.
â€śWe are working with you to tackle organised, serious, transnational crimes. My presence as England and Wales’ prosecutor should send a message that we have a challenge of terrorists and corruption, and we are ready to tackle them,” stated Hill.
British High Commissioner to Kenya Nic Hailey, who was also in attendance, urged the leaders implicated in the scandal to step aside in order to accord the agenciesÂ ample time to carry out intensive investigations.
â€śThe British governmentâ€™s call is that anyone who is suspected, or investigated or indicted with serious crimes, should step aside from office to allow investigations without witnesses tampering and interfering with evidence.
â€śThis is not to say that we use it to make people step down because (that way) none of us would have a job at the end of the day,” stated Hailey.
Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and Ethics and Anti-Corruption CEO Twalib Mbarak are among notable people who graced the event.
