Nairobi prosecutor throws in the towel

Nairobi-based lawyer Philip Murgor has resigned as a public prosecutor just four months after taking up the job. He thanked Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji for his term but said his office did not assign him any cases despite him honouring his contract which prevented him from acting against the DPP in any matter. The Daily Nation reports that he added that the DPP was yet to provide other special prosecutors, who were also given two-year contracts, adequate security. Murgor, a former DPP, was appointed a public prosecutor in December alongside ex-Mombasa mayor Taib Ali Taib and Public-Private Partnerships Petition Committee chairman James Kihara.
