Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji will on Wednesday evening appear in Jeff Koinange Show on Citizen TV amid simmering resistance in the approach on graft war.
Already, Deputy President William Ruto has discredited the ongoing fight against corruption, insisting that it's selective and aims at bringing him down .
Mr Haji and his DCI counterpart George Kinoti have been on spot, with Ruto's allies accusing them of being used politically for the purposes of 2022 polls.
"Noordin Haji: The ‘Sheriff’ is just getting started! Tonight, he tells @KoinangeJeff why he is so passionate about the fight on corruption. #JKLive @ 9PM. Don't miss," Citizen TV tweeted.
While Ruto believes the ongoing graft purge is unfair, President Uhuru Kenyatta on his part has exuded confidence in Haji and Kinoti, insisting nobody will be spared in the crackdown.
“No one is being targeted and we will not be distracted by those politicising the fight. Even if you are my sister, brother or mother, you will not be spared. If you are innocent, let us see that in court,” the President said last year.
Last week, Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen openly differed with Mr Haji over the construction of Kimwarer and Arror dams where the government says at least Sh21 billion was misappropriated.
Mr Haji, who admitted that the money had been paid contrary to Ruto's claims, said he had dispatched his team to help the DCI in the ongoing investigations.
"I welcome the acknowledgment by the DPP that matters project financing especially where syndicated loans are involved are complex. Though we have few experts in this area, I hope DPP will do everything 2 ensure that the truth is unearthed.There’re glaring errors in the statement," said Murkomen.
He added: "21B WAS NOT paid to the contractor. Only about 7.8B was paid for 2 projects by contractor as advance secured by performance bond&to be be recovered in the course of the life of the contract from the certificates issued from time to time. This is a standard practice in the sector."
