In a harsh indictment against the Jubilee regime, suspended Lands CS Charity Ngilu yesterday accused Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko of selective prosecutions, wondering how he chose to charge her on a matter that was already in court.
Ngilu also wondered how EACC got involved in investigating a private property yet they declined to investigate KQ for the same reason.
She also revealed, as alleged by embattled CS Anne Waiguru, that its her who called in the investigators, yet was still fired.
â€œNo competent, independent and professional prosecutor, acting impartially and within the confines of law, could have reached a decision to charge me,â€ said Mrs Ngilu.
â€œThe DPP showed double standards because he refused to recommend charges in some cases on the basis that the disputes were in court.
“How then did he decide to prosecute me when the ownership dispute is in court?â€ said Mrs Ngilu.
The CS also wondered how EACC could get involved in the land in question when it is a private property.
â€œThe land at the centre of the alleged offence is private and not public, and, therefore, does not fall within the jurisdiction of the anti-graft agency to investigate.
â€œThe prosecution is just a ploy to pre-empt and influence the outcome of the ownership dispute,â€ she said.
