Internet users responded differently to his announcement.

“All the best wishes – Dr Miguna! You are an upright man,” one user commented. 

After Noordin Haji took the oath of office to become the Director General of the National Intelligence Service on June 14, the position of DPP became vacant.

President William Ruto formed a seven-person selection committee to find the next DPP last month through a gazette notice dated June 21.

Francis Atwoli, the head of the Central Organisation of Trade Unions, and Twalib Mbarak, the CEO of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, made up the panel that issued the invitation to apply for the position on June 29.

Others Shadrack Mose, the Solicitor General, Twalib Mbarak, the President of the Public Service, Mary Kimonye, and Francis Atwoli, the Secretary General of the Central Organisation of Trade Unions.

The committee has set a deadline of 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 12 for interested parties to submit applications.

Additionally running are Cliff Ombeta, Kioko Kilokumi Katwa Kigen, and Danstan Omari, all of whom are solicitors.

Lawyer Danstan Omari expressed interest in the role and claimed that because of his extensive legal expertise, he meets the requirements for the position.

“I don’t think there is anyone who is more qualified than I am right now. I don’t think there is anyone who can compete with me in the criminal space,” Omari said.
