THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS PAYS A COURTESY CALL ON KACC DIRECTOR

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr. Keriako Tobiko, yesterday Thursday 7th July 2011 paid a courtesy call on the Director of Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission, Prof. PLO Lumumba at Integrity Centre.

The two agreed to form a permanent liaison committee to improve efficiency and relations between the two offices. Each body will select appropriate officers to represent it in the committee. Mr. Tobiko pointed out that he hoped that the committee will provide a suitable forum where potential problematic issues are addressed early, and that the public can look forward to a better service.

Prof. Lumumba lauded the speed at which the DPP has dealt with KACC cases since his appointment, saying he had already given direction on 39 cases that had been forwarded to his office.
Out of the 39, the DPP agreed with KACC’s recommendations in 37 of them.’ Prof. Lumumba said. (Recommendations vary from: recommendation to prosecute; recommendation to close a file; and recommendation to pursue administrative recourse).

Further, KACC proposed that an e-system be established between the two institutions, where cases will be sent to the DPP’s office online, and responded to in the same way. The shuttling of files back and forth will be reduced. It was also noted that such a move would be in line with the global ‘going green’ move, because all drafts will be paperless, and only the final files will be printed.

KACC already has a state-of-the-art electronic case management file system, which if linked with the DPP’s office would greatly improve efficiency.

The two leaders noted the need for investigative and law enforcement agencies to work together, to reduce duplication, leverage strengths and enhance the optimization of use of resources.

Also discussed was the need for clear policy direction on alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like reconciliation and mediation. The new Amnesty provision whose regulations were recently published also falls in this category. It is hoped that the new Amnesty provision will boost asset recovery.
