We are worried – Noordin Haji's father Yusuf Haji speaks on son’s DPP job

Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji speaks on his son Noordin's work as DPP

Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji has for the first time commented on his son, Noordin Haji’s work as the Director of Public Prosecutions.

In an interview with KTN News, Yusuf said he was proud of his son’s work but admitted that the family was worried about that the job was likely to pose a danger to their security.

We are very proud, but at the same time we are a bit worried because the work he is doing for his country will raise many enemies,” the Jubilee Senator stated.

Noordin has become the new face of the state’s renewed fight against corruption, and has worked with the head of the DCI George Kinoti to pursue several cases involving powerful individuals.

The elder Haji, a long-time ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta, further dismissed speculation that he had a hand in his son’s appointment to the powerful position.

That is rubbish. Those who say that are people with very minute brains, how many Kenyans have been appointed to that position? Was it because of their fathers? To be honest to you, I did not even know he would be appointed,” he said.

Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji is currently co-chairing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) which was formed after the famous handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Leader Raila Odinga.
