NAIROBI C.C. Sabathia Jersey , Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's chief prosecutor has ordered investigations into electoral offences allegedly committed by various persons in the bungled Aug. 8 general elections.


Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Keriako Tobiko on Saturday evening instructed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate individuals who committed electoral offences in the recent elections.


Tobiko ordered DCI boss Ndegwa Muhoro and EACC chief executive officer Halakhe Waqo to conduct "thorough, comprehensive and expeditious" investigations to be submitted to him within 21 days.


He said he wants investigations conducted even though the Supreme Court did not blame anyone over the sham polls which were overturned by the apex court following successful petition by opposition leader Raila Odinga.


"The fact that it did not do so does not take away the powers of the DPP under Article 157(4) of the Constitution or Section 21 of the Elections Offences Act to order such investigations in an appropriate case such as the present one," Tobiko said in his letter to the two government agencies.


The scope of the probe should seek to establish whether electoral or criminal offences -- including corruption and economic crimes -- were committed by IEBC officials.


"I have designated a team of senior prosecutors to provide technical guidance and assistance to the investigation teams," said Tobiko.


Among those to be investigated include IEBC chief executive officer Ezra Chiloba and 11 other officials, opposition members Musalia Mudavadi and James Orengo.
