DPP won’t prosecute Raila over military rigging claim


The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko has said no one can direct him to prosecute former Prime Minister Raila Odinga over alleged incitement of the public.

A statement sent to newsrooms on Tuesday said aggrieved parties should file a formal complaint at his office as he does not act “on ultimatum issued at political rallies or barazas.”

“The DPP wishes to make it clear that under Article 157 of the Constitution, his Office is independent and not subject to the directions, control or supervision of any person, ” the statement read.

Any aggrieved parties should file a formal complaint with the police or the DPP office, it added.

Mr Odinga came under fire after his statement at a rally in Kisumu last weekend claiming that the military rigged the March 4 General Election.-nation.co.ke
