Petitioner Wants ODPP Interviews Halted


A petition has been filed in the High Court to halt interviews scheduled for April 28th by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Nordin Haji.

Petioner Memba Ocharo, through his lawyer Danstan Omari, has petitioned the high court to halt the interviews, accusing Haji of portraying nepotism in three positions, claiming that the candidates shortlisted for the positions of principal administrative officer, senior supply chain management officer 1, and senior principal finance officer share the same ethnic and religious backgrounds as the DPP.

“The matter has raised eyebrows in the public on equal opportunities, particularly in employment matters.” Ocharo makes a counter-argument.

He claimed the DPP’s actions were in violation of articles 72(3) and 232 of the Constitution.

Kenyans have lost faith in the process, according to Ocharo, who has urged the court to grant his prayers.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions published a list of candidates shortlisted for 20 positions in various departments, including supply chain management, ICT, administration, accounts, and human resources management, on its website on March 29th of this year.

The EACC is listed as an interested party, along with the speakers of both houses of Parliament, the National Treasury, the Office of the Ombudsman, and the Public Service Commission.
