Why Noordin Haji wants Solai Dam tragedy case transferred from Naivasha

Noordin Haji, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) wants the Solai Dam tragedy case moved from Naivasha to Nairobi.

DPP Noordin Haji in his application claims that the scene of crime had been interfered with and there had been attempts to tamper with witnesses.

“DPP Noordin Haji wants the trial of Perry Mansukh and 8 others in Solai case transferred from Naivasha to Nairobi on grounds that scene of crime had been interfered with,” wrote the office of the DPP on Twitter.

The tweet further says that even the security of the prosecutors could not be assured.

Prosecutions said that the trial might not be fair if it is conducted at the Naivasha Law Courts.

In this regard, Naivasha High Court Judge Richard Mwongo will on 2nd October make a ruling on the case transfer.
