Miguna Miguna applies for DPP

Miguna Miguna, a city lawyer, claims he has sought the position of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

In a tweet sent out on Monday night, Miguna declared his formal intention of succeeding Haji, writing: "For the avoidance of any doubt, YES, I have submitted my application for the position of The Director of Public Prosecutions."

The group charged with finding candidates to take Haji's post has just been established.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) CEO Twalib Mbarak, the Solicitor General Shadrack Mose, and COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli make up the seven-member committee that was established on June 27.

Mary Kimonye, Mary Adhiambo Maumga, Roseline Odede, and Richard Onsongo Bush Obwocha are more members of the public service.

Candidates for the DPP position were required to have at least 10 years of previous experience as a higher-court judge or professionally qualified magistrate, according to a June 29 Public Service Commission (PSC) job posting.

On May 16, President William Ruto proposed Noordin Haji as the new director of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), leaving the post vacant.

The Defence and Foreign Relations Committee of Parliament reviewed and cleared Haji on June 13, and he was sworn in on June 14.

One such person who has openly indicated his desire for the DPP position is well-known lawyer Danstan Omari.

Sources indicate that President William Ruto is pushing for Miguna Miguna for that seat ahead of shortlisting and vetting.
