Court allows DPP’s application to withdraw Ksh.7.4B fraud case against DP Gachagua
court has allowed the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP)’s application to
withdraw a Ksh.7.4 billion fraud case against Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua
and nine others.
Judge Victor Wakumile notified the accused persons that they might be re-arrested over the same charges in future.
In the ruling, the judge faulted DPP for pressing charges on DP Gachagua and his co-accused without conducting conclusive investigations.
“How come DPP seemed to have acted and preferred charges based on inconclusive investigations? One cannot be prompted to infer that he acted under pressure from his junior the DCIO,” read the ruling.
Judge Wakumile further noted that there is need for the court to make recommendations that might improve the criminal justice system to avert such incidences in future.
