Mwilu’s son dragged to mother’s corruption case
DPP reveals new information
Haji responded after Mwilu moved to the High Court seeking to stop the DPP from presenting criminal charges against her.
In the replies, the DPP, together with Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have sought to convince the court that the DCJ’s relations with Imperial Bank were unprofessional and unethical.
In one affidavit, the senior detective from the DCI has revealed that Mwilu’s son, Timothy Mutunga, worked at Imperial Bank and was used to liaise communication between the bank and the DCJ (at the time a Court of Appeal judge).
Timothy has worked as a Quality Assurance officer at Imperial Bank since 2015 when he was employed – allegedly at the intervention of his mother.
Both the DCI and the DPP denied that the case was motivated by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s threat to revisit the judiciary – arguing that they had strong evidence of criminal conduct on the part of the Supreme Court judge.
“To quash the proceedings as prayed by the petitioner would amount to impeding the DPP from performing his constitutional and statutory duties,” Ogwora stated.
“Having reached an independent decision to prosecute, the DPP should not be vilified without any justifiable cause,” senior prosecuting counsel Lillian Ogwora said.
