Nairobi, KENYA: Director of Public Prosecution’s father Yusuf Haji has expressed worries over his family’s security due to his son’s nature of work.

Speaking in an interview with a local TV station, Yusuf Haji, who is also the senator of Garissa County stated that he is proud of his son’s effort to fight corruption despite that it attracts a lot of enemies.

“We are very proud, but at the same time we are a bit worried because the work he is doing for his country will raise many enemies,” the Jubilee Senator stated.

Yusuf Haji who is a close ally of President Uhuru and also co-chairs the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) distanced himself from allegations that he had an influence on his son’s appointment to the Director of Public Prosecutions post.

“That is rubbish. Those who say that are people with very minute brains, how many Kenyans have been appointed to that position? Was it because of their fathers? To be honest to you, I did not even know he would be appointed,” he said

DPP Noordin Haji has become a household name among Kenyans over his relentless effort together with Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti that has seen figures deemed as untouchables prosecuted over their alleged involvement in corruption scandals in the country.
