The letter signed by TIK CEO Sheila Masinde stated that some of the cases withdrawn by Haji had led to him winning the award.

“We have received public petitions and conducted an assessment based on concerns raised by the public and our partners championing Integrity in Kenya. These petitions have raised serious allegations regarding withdrawal of high profile corruption cases, including those  for which you were previously recognised, result to the loss of funds,” the latter stated.

Bring back plaque and certificate

According to Ms. Masinde, Haji’s withdrawal of cases has resulted to him derogating from his responsibility as the Director of Public Prosecutions thus eroding public confidence.

She further asked Haji to give back the certificate and the plaque that came with the award.

The Leadership Integrity Award was given Haji for particularly ensuring the process of serious corruption cases and providing strategic direction to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP).

“The leadership Integrity Award was at that time, bestowed upon you in recognition of the role played in the criminal justice process. Particularly in ensuring the process of serious corruption cases and providing strategic direction to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP). The judging panel of 2019 Integrity Awards comprising some independent comission enforcement agencies, professional bodies and civil society organisation were convicted that   your dedication to upholding the rule of law and inspiring public confidence in your office was commendable and worthy of recognition,” the letter read.
