Law scholar Makau Mutua says that Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji is a big let down to Kenyans in the manner which he handles cases.

Mutua, a law professor at a New York-based university, said a lot of cases in Kenya crumble because of the shoddy job investigators do in gathering evidence to prosecute suspects.

Speaking on JKL Live on Wednesday night, Mutua said Haji wants to give the public an impression that he is doing a good job.

“Any good prosecutor will tell you that if you make an arrest you should have enough evidence for you to be successful,” said Mutua.

He faulted the DPP for arresting suspects and arraigning them in court before building a strong case, which will secure a conviction.

On hiring foreign counsel to help in prosecution, Mutua said that it is ill-advised because the problem is not competent lawyers but rather lack of proper investigation which can help in creating watertight cases.
