The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions Ke­ri­ako To­biko, in a let­ter to the EACC, said there is suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to charge former NYS deputy di­rec­tor gen­eral Adan Harakhe with abuse of of­fice for is­su­ing a lo­cal pur­chase or­der and au­tho­ris­ing a pay­ment to a com­pany listed as Blue Star En­ter­prises. The spe­cialised plant equip­ment and ma­chin­ery for train­ing ma­te­rial by the NYS was ap­proved al­legedly by the val­u­a­tion ten­der­ing com­mit­tee. Harakhe said his at­tempted pros­e­cu­tion “is a witch-hunt mis­sion”. He said the Ethics and Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mi­sion seeks to ap­pease its mas­ters.
