Senior Counsel Orengo reveals why courts have failed to convict individuals in major graft claims

Senior Counsel James Orengo has revealed why the Courts have failed to convict individuals that have been involved in major corruption cases.

While appearing on KTN News during a political show dubbed PointBlank, Orengo said the courts had let the country down in the fight against graft.

He, however, defended Chief Justice David Maraga and other judges from attacks by the Executive.

“The first thing I would say, let not the Executive interfere with the Judiciary, however, poorly they are doing.

The moment Judiciary becomes more Executive than the executive we are in trouble. I am, however, a bit let down by the Judiciary,” he said.

He further observed that the reason why the courts had failed to convict individuals in major graft claims could be because of poor evidence gathering by investigators.

The minority leader further talked about the simmering unease in the Senate over Speaker Ken Lusaka’s involvement in politics.

He said senators had raised the matter with both Lusaka and National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
