The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji’s Nairobi residence was broken into by thugs who stole the electronics they could get their hands on.
A television set, a laptop and assorted shoes were among the items that were stolen during the incident.
The incident happened on Friday morning when Haji and his wife were not on the premises.
The DPP took to social media accounts to share the news about the incident.
While hinting at the possibility of some malice, the DPP clarified the robbery happened at his residence and not his office.
"The DPP would like to clarify that there was a robbery at his residence, not his office, & investigations are ongoing. The ODPP, as a Prosecuting Authority, doesn’t collect or store evidence of any nature. Members of the public & media are urged not to politicise this incident," Haji said.
According to two armed police officers manning the DPP’s compound, nothing drew their attention to the robbery, as they did not hear a thing.
One of the DPP’s sons who went downstairs for morning worship was the one who discovered that a robbery had occurred at their home and drew his father’s attention to the incident.
Nairobi Regional Police Commander James Mugera who visited the scene of the crime confirmed investigations into the matter have already been launched.
“They broke into the house, but it seems no one heard it. We are talking to all workers and security who were present for more information,” Mugera said.
Detectives from the crime scene unit also visited the scene and collected evidence for the investigation.
