The ODPP has been lauded for its exemplary performance in registering the highest conviction rate for anti-corruption cases, ever in the country. This was during the launch of the State of the Judiciary and Administration of Justice Report officiated by His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta. Speaking during the event, Chief Justice David Maraga said that the ODPP recorded an “improved overall conviction rate of 72.4% in FY2016/17 which is the highest ever recorded in Kenya in this class type”.
The CJ said that the good work demonstrated by the ODPP was clear evidence of benefits of collaboration in the justice sector. He added that the ODPP continued with the ‘follow-the-money’ and ‘full-range of the law’ approaches resulting in more cases of economic crimes, abuse of office, money laundering and organized crime being prosecuted.
