Seven MPs have protested the presence in Kenya of Jersey Island solicitor-general to lobby the government to extradite two Kenyans.The MPs asserted that Kenya is capable of trying Chris Okemo, the Nambale MP, and Samuel Gichuru, who was head of the then Kenya Power and Lighting Company over money laundering claims.MPs Walter Nyambati, Ababu Namwamba, Charles Kilonzo and Mohammed Affey said the presence in the country of Howard Sharp amounts to undue influence on the High Court, which is currently handling a case for the extradition of the two Kenyans.They were joined at the press conference at Parliament Buildings by legislators Justus Kizito, Charles Onyancha and Moriasi Ombui.The thrust of their argument is that Mr Sharp’s presence amounts to undue interference on the court to rule for the extradition of the two prominent Kenyans.They also accused the British government, of which Jersey is a protected territory, of double standards over the delay in bringing back to Kenya Gilbert Deya and Yagnesh Devani to face justice at home.
