DUO SAYS IN­TENDED PROS­E­CU­TION IS WITCH-HUNT

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

For­mer NYS chief Adan Harakhe and com­mit­tee head Noor Has­san filed an ap­pli­ca­tion at the High Court to bar the DPP from au­tho­ris­ing or pre­fer­ring crim­i­nal charges against them con­cern­ing the loss of mil­lions of shillings at the Na­tional Youth Ser­vice. But they failed to con­vince the court. The two, through their lawyer Roger Sa­gana, had pleaded with the judge to is­sue tem­po­rary or­ders. They said they were apprehensive the DPP was go­ing to order they take pleas today. The spe­cialised plant equip­ment and ma­chin­ery for train­ing ma­te­ri­als by the NYS were ap­proved al­legedly by the val­u­a­tion ten­der­ing com­mit­tee. In their suits, the duo says the in­tended pros­e­cu­tion is a witch-hunt against them as the DPP and the EACC seek to ap­pease their mas­ters. Has­san was the chair­man of the min­is­te­rial ten­der com­mit­tee. He says the de­ci­sion to pur­chase the equip­ment was based on an eval­u­a­tion re­port.
