The office of the Director Of Public Prosecutions has appealed a bizarre ruling that was made by Justice Odunga after Safaricom killer director Sylvia Mulinge manipulated the courts in her favour.
A source from the DPP’s office said that they are not protecting Sylvia Mulinge in any way since it has been weeks after they appealed the bizarre ruling that is suspected to have seen Safaricom use its financial might to kill the case.
This was after the High court barred the police and DPP from arresting and prosecuting her.
Justice George Odunga prohibited the agencies from arresting or prosecuting Mulinge for the offence of causing the death of a minor by dangerous driving.
In a judgement read on his behalf by Justice John Mativo, Odunga further ordered that Mulinge should not be charged at the Kibera law courts.
He said the status quo remains unless the police and DPP have satisfactory evidence that the circumstances have changed to warrant a review of the initial decision not to charge her.
Mulinge had moved to court in a bid to stop her arrest arguing that there was malice from the police to charge her for an offence that occurred in February 2015.
On the night of 1st February 2015, a drunk Sylvia Wairimu Njugua also known as Sylvia Mulinge was the driver of a Toyota Prado, KBU 483M, driving along the Southern-By-Pass in Nairobi when she negligently drove and caused it to hit eight-year-old Mary Kusa Etale who then passed on.
The said motor vehicle was registered in the name of Safaricom as at the time of the fatal accident which was reported at Langata Police Station and recorded in the occurrence book as number 3/01/02/2015.
Mulinge then compromised relevant authorities and the sad case was thrown away. The girl’s family members said that the only compensation they received after the accident was just Ksh. 200,000 from Sylvia.
This case would later cause the Tanzanian government to deny Mulinge a work permit after she found a job in one of the top telecommunication companies in the country.
Inhumane would be an understatement to describe a woman who valued the life of little Mary Kusa at just a few hundred thousands.
A source from the ODPP’s office further informed cnyakundi.com that they have been denied a date in the appeal, confirming that Safaricom is using their financial might to manipulate the courts. This also confirms that Judiciary is becoming an hindrance in the war against graft.
