In an exclusive interview yesterday, Hajidisclosed that out of 415 people his office has taken to court on graftcharges, 141 are Kikuyus.
Reacting to Haji’s expose, Miguna poked holesin list observing there was no senior Government official from the populouscommunity who had been charged.
He claimed the 141 Kikuyus fighting graftcases were "clerks and messengers", adding that the DPP deserved nopraise since he has not nabbed the big fish.
"Apparently, President Uhuru Kenyatta'shand-picked DPP Noordin Haji has stated that 141 Kikuyu clerks and messengershave been "charged with corruption-related offences."
"No names. Andnot a single Kikuyu CS, principal secretary or parastatal head, yet some arecheering him on," he said.
Miguna further claimed the Kikuyu communityoccupies 70 per cent of all senior positions in the Government and accusedthem of perpetuating runaway corruption.
"Kenya is made up of 50 million peopleand 45 ethnic communities. But it is a fact that one ethnic group comprise morethan 70 per cent of cabinet secretaries, principal secretaries, CEOs and othersenior Government officials who have presided over the runawaygraft," said Miguna.
