Julie Gichuru deletes tweet explaining her relationship with feared NIS boss

Let the past

Julie tweeted shortly after Noordin was nominated by President Uhuru Kenyatta to occupy the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

"Congratulations to my University of Wales College of Cardiff law school classmate Noordin Haji on his appointment to Director of Public Prosecutions! Wishing you all the best as you serve the nation in this capacity," she stated.

However, Julie quietly pulled down the tweet without offering an explanation on why she deleted the innocent message.

Noordin is the son of Garissa Senator Yusuf Mohamed Haji and is notably media shy owing to the nature of his job as the NIS deputy director.

The DPP nominee was first mentioned to the public by journalist Mohamed Ali in the popular Jicho Pevu programme which focused on alleged ruthless methods Noordin was using against terror suspects.

Noordin's broken cover became a concern for his family especially after he was shortly caught up in the Westgate attack.

His younger brother, Abdul Haji, gained international heroic status after he was captured on camera saving numerous of civilians while in the process of rescuing his brother who will now occupy the powerful office of DPP.
