We feel betrayed - DCI Kinoti opens up on fall out with DPP Noordin Haji

We feel betrayed - DCI George Kinoti opens up on  fall out with DPP Noordin Haji

The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti has opened on the deteriorated relationship between his office and that of the office of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) headed by Noordin Haji.

Kinoti aired out his frustrations in an interview with the Nation where he complained that his officers now felt betrayed by the lack of action by the DPP's office.

A number of investigation files prepared by the DCI have been gathering dust at the DPP's office which has the final say on criminal investigations.

"My officers are now getting frustrated daily. They spend a lot of time investigating crime, risking their lives — and even after getting all the evidence required to prosecute cases, they are reduced to carrying files.

It is important for Kenyans to know that my officers have done their level best. They feel betrayed. My worry is when suspects tell my officers ‘you are going nowhere’ and then it comes to pass,” Kinoti stated.

On Thursday, Haji and Kinoti addressed a joint press conference at the DPP's office where they addressed the plea bargain agreements made with bank executives who aided in the theft of money in the NYS scandal.

The DPP used the press conference to speak on his relationship with DCI - insisting that they were working well.

"Please do not attempt to create fights between us. We are not fighting and we continue to work together. Some of the files that are said to have been delayed, we want people to be patient because we are working on them. Even husbands and their wives disagree but do not use what has happened in the past to say we are fighting each other. Me and Kinoti are brothers and will continue working together," Haji stated.
