Interior CS Fred Matiang’i says that weak investigative systems cannot offer successful prosecutions in the country.
Speaking at the award ceremony of 48 prosecutors, at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Matiang’i called for cooperation between the investigative system, the judiciary, and the prosecution system.
He said, this will ensure there is justice in Kenya.
He also commended the graduands and urged them to deliver to their level best.
Matiang’i said, “The law enforcement chain is as strong or as weak as each of its course. If you have compromised prosecution, it won’t matter what level in the station that is going to be done.”
He added, “If a lot of good work is not going to be done at the Judiciary, then justice is not going to be served. What we are doing here today and what you have done, DPP, in ensuring that now you are training and inducting prosecutors effectively.”
Speaking at the same time, the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji, told the graduands to appraise themselves.
He said, the quality of their work should be greatly enhanced, so as to offer the nation the returns on its investment in the security and prosecution sectors.
Havi said, “The pessimism that may arise from years of service must not be allowed to take route. This can only be achieved through enhanced quality of your work. Graduates, you must embrace in innovativeness and creativity in conducting your work.“
He added, “The threat our country faces through the evolving nature of crime requires us to be innovative and creative in our ports towards combating through prosecution of this new threat. The induction training has equipped you with new ideas and I hope you will not only learn but also implement what you’ve learnt.”
