DPP Haji says his office has Not received Murder Case file on Sergeant Kenei

KENYA: Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji yesterday told the Nation that he has never been furnished with a probe file on Mr Kenei’s death for any action.

Mr Haji’s revelation is an indication that the investigation into Mr Kenei’s death has disappeared, and the former AP officer risks joining the list of unsolved murders in Kenya.

While explaining the challenges in getting high profile convictions, Mr Haji told the Nation there is no case with regard to Mr Kenei’s killing because his office has never been asked to approve charges against anyone in the case, an indication that the DCI could have hit a snag with the probe.

“There is no Kenei case. The murder/suicide one? No, that file has never come to us,” Mr Haji said.

The DPP, however, asked Kenyans to be patient with the prosecution process, saying it at times drags beyond expectations owing to several factors beyond his office’s control.

Mr Kinoti disconnected our calls and said through a text message that he was in a meeting. He did not, however, respond to our text message inquiring on the status of investigations.

Mr Kenei was an AP sergeant attached to the Deputy President’s office, and his death followed investigations into an arms deal in which Mr Echesa is suspected to have tried to defraud a Polish arms dealer of Sh39 billion.

Kenei was killed just as the DCI was probing a Ksh39 billion arms deal that saw meetings held at the Deputy President’s Harambee Annex office.

Kenei’s body was discovered in his house two days after failing to report to work.

At the time he was required to record a statement with detectives at the DCI Headquarters on activities of the day ex-sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and Polish arms dealers visited the DP’s office.

During a press conference in March last year, DCI George Kinoti aired footage depicting one of Mr Kenei’s last moments —  the former AP guard ushering former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and two other individuals into Deputy President William Ruto’s Harambee Annex offices.

But more than one year later, prosecutors have never been given the investigation file to either approve charges or recommend loose ends that need to be tied up for a solid case.
