Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja now claims that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is under influence not to prosecute those responsible for the death for her daughter Tecra Muigai.
In a request to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the breweries proprietor is seeking to have an inquest into her daughter’s death heard in Nairobi and not Lamu island.
“A number of things that have happened as I will detail below and the request by the DPP to this court referred to above have triggered extreme and well- founded suspicion in me and the entire family of the deceased that the conduct of the Director of Public Prosecutions is inconsistent with the constitutional and statutory principles that ought to guide the conduct of the Director of Public Prosecutions in handling this matter,” says Tabitha
The letter outlines that the primary mode of transport to the island is via boat stating that it would endanger her family.
Ms Karanja argues that Lali is influential among boat owners and beach boys who ply the route which poses a threat to the billionaire family accusing him of their daughter’s death.
It came as a extreme shock to the family of the deceased to learn that the Director of Public Prosecution has made another whimsical and arbitrary decision to terminate/withdraw the inquest proceedings
from the Chief Magistrates Court at Milimani Law Courts with an indication of getting the same instituted at Lamu Law Courts,” says Tabitha
