The DPP exonerated Waititu’s daughter Monica Njeri, a co-director in the family’s company, saying she was not aware of its dealings.

“Upon review, we find that she was a sleeping director and not active in the affairs of the company,” Haji said. EACC had wanted her prosecuted alongside her parents.
