Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has finally responded to a section of politicians that have taken issue with his mode of operation.

A section of Rift Valley politicians have faulted his operations regarding latest corruption scandals, claiming that he is being used by superior forces to victimize some politicians.

The group which is allied to Deputy President William Ruto has repeatedly claimed that he is being used to paint Ruto corrupt,  with an aim of scuttling his 2022 presidential bid.

But speaking on JKL Wednesday evening, Haji rubbished the claims, noting that no one is being been being targeted and his office is simply doing its constitutional job.

"We are not targeting any individual, we are just doing our job. What we have are cases and the needed evidence and the rest will be decided on by the courts," said Haji.

He added that he will not be derailed by the increasing political noises and interruptions, making it clear that people who have stolen will be punished regardless of their status.

"Whoever you are and whichever tribe you are, you will have to face the law if you happen to have stolen from Kenyans. You must face the law," he added.

Ruto's allies have lately been claiming that Haji is being used to directly attack the DP with regards to the ongoing probe on the Arror and Kimwarer dams scandals.

Such claims were publicly made by Kapseret lawmaker Oscar Sudi on Monday, March 4.
