Deputy Public Prosecutor Noordin Haji is winning the love of many Kenyans for his zeal to fight corruption at a time where its at its peak.
But it has not been a smooth ride as he has faced death threats even from Al Shabaab,in a candid interview with the Nairobian he says
“I have received threats, but this is not the first time. I worked with the NIS (National Intelligence Service) and I received threats from the Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda. They used to threaten even my family.
Those threats still exist. Al-Shabaab actually renewed their threats against me. But there have also been subtle threats, like bringing up my father’s name in the National Land Commission case. How come that issue was not raised before the NLC officers were charged?”
Despite the threats Haji says that he will keep doing what he is supposed to do since he believes in God and his divine protection.
“It is a way of telling me to go slow or drop the cases. But I want to make it very clear that I believe in God, and only God can determine my destiny. So, if I’m destined to die on a certain day, nothing and no one can change that.
We all have an expiry date and frankly, if I have to die for this cause, then so be it. Nothing would be more fulfilling. I am determined to see this to the end, for God and for my country.”
