Francis Njeru, a Nairobi-based businessman, has filed a petition to have the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji removed from office.
Njeru claimed that the DPP failed to prosecute two directors of a company who were reportedly accused with falsifying the land documents in issue in a petition filed with the Public Service Commission (PSC).
Njeru further stated that the DPP was hesitant to charge the two directors because he (Haji) was related to them, citing a conflict of interest.
The two directors had wanted to be enjoined in a court action filed by the businessman in 2016 after a trespasser encroached on his land, according to the petition.

The two had asked to be enjoined from the case, claiming to be interested parties.
However, in 2019, a judge denied the request, and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was ordered to investigate an affidavit signed by a corporate legal officer.
According to reports, the DCI discovered that the documents were fabricated and recommended that the DPP prosecute the firm directors for the forgery.
