Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji has confirmed that he is committed to dispensing his duties and serving justice without fear or favour.
Speaking on JKL Wednesday evening, Haji said that absolutely no one would be able to manipulate him, especially in the corruption cases he is currently working on.
He rubbished claims that he is working on orders of President Uhuru Kenyatta to victimize specific political figures, saying that Uhuru has never reached out to him for such reasons.
The chief prosecutor said that he would readily reject such temptations and dishonor such directives even in the instance that they come from the highest office in the nation.
"I have never received a call from either the president or his deputy teling me what to do," he said.
"If such a call comes I would refer them to the constitution. I would remind them that they swore to defend it," he added.
This comes at a time when Haji's office and that of the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti have been on the spotlight with regards to the ongoing purge on graft.
The two have taken over as the most relied on institutions to fight the runaway corruption in the nation and have been praised and condemned in equal measure.
Their faulters have accused them of being used by high offices to victimize their enemies.
