James Orengo and Okong’o Omogeni in court

The Director of Public Prosecutions has a filed a motion seeking to bar two lawyers from representing Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu in a graft case.

Noordin Haji argues there is conflict of interest by counsels James Orengo and Okong’o Omogeni by them lawyering for the deputy chief justice.

Mwilu is facing charges of abuse of office, failure to pay stamp tax, improperly obtaining Sh12 million from Imperial Bank, and obtaining security for a loan by false pretence.

Her trial was stopped after she challenged the charges at the High Court. The DCJ and lawyer Stanley Muluvi were to face 13 charges over monies allegedly received from the collapsed Imperial Bank.

Haji says Orengo – Siaya Senator, and Omogeni – Nyamira Senator, participated in a sitting of the Senate Committee on Justice, Legal Affairs and Human Rights where a petition against Queens Counsel Khawar Qureshi was raised.
