A Kenyan on social media has accused Director Of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji of running a Dog and Pony Show meant to appease, distract and on the most part simply entertain an angry electorate.
I am starting to realize that the DPP and his office are running a Dog and Pony Show meant to appease, distract and on the most part simply entertain an angry electorate.
How do you assemble a case and present it in court without the requisite documents? That’s a joke, not case.

This is after the DPP ordered DCI to investigate the loss of some documents that were key in a transformer case that saw almost the whole Kenya Power management go home over the corruption that resulted in the purchase of faulty exploding transformers with the faulty ones lying unused.
According to the social media user, the DPP Noordin Haji did a big mistake, either intentionally or out of the will, by assembling the case and presenting it in court without the requisite documents. The user says that is a joke, not a case.
This morning, it was confirmed that the Office of the Director of Criminal Investigations is probing the circumstances under which crucial documents in the prosecution of graft case involving former KPLC bosses may have disappeared.
Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecution Mr Alexander Muteti on Monday requested the High Court to adjourn the case and grant his office more time to investigate and trace the documents.
Muteti said Energy Regulation Commission prepared a report touching on the procurement of substandard transformers, in which former KPLC managing director Ben Chumo and his successor Ken Tarus were implicated.
And that, the said documents are missing at the DPP’s office. According to the Muteti, the case cannot proceed without the availability of the original documents.
