MOMBASA– The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Mohamed Haji, has assured the public that his office will work with the police to investigate extra-judicial killings in Kenya’s Coast region and other parts of the country.
Speaking when he received a report on extra-judicial killings from Haki Africa, a human rights organization, here Sunday, he also vowed to prosecute whoever is responsible for the death of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno last week.
Adding that anyone, including 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 implicated will be questioned as no one is above the law. He 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 incidents of killings will be investigated as his office plans to set up public inquiries in three weeks’ time.
Sharon Otieno was abducted together with a journalist, Barrack Oduor, on Monday last week. The journalist escaped by jumping off a speeding car and was admitted to Aga Khan Hospital in Kisumu. Sharon’s body was found near Kodera Forest on Wednesday.
Governor Obado’s personal assistant was later arrested and is expected to be arraigned in court on Monday.
Obado has denied involvement in the murder.
