DPP wants Muite out of fertiliser case

It is a case of conflict of interest and the court should disqualify him from representing the accused person,” said Mr Owiti. But Muite in a rejoinder accused the DPP of using the application to delay the case and frustrate court orders for retesting of the 3,500 tonnes of fertiliser. He wondered why the prosecutor had waited for one year to file the application for his disqualification considering he has represented Oduor since July 2018. He swore that he has never been on the Kebs' list of long-term lawyers, and that the matters in which he represented the State agency was totally different. “The application is made in bad faith (and its) full of lies,” said Muite. The application will be determined tomorrow.
