The Office  of the director of public prosecution has refuted claims by senior counsel Ahmednassir who had through his tweet said that Kenya has a conviction rate of 2%.

During the launch of the State of the Judiciary and Administration of Justice Report officiated by His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta, the ODPP was lauded for registering the highest conviction rate to be ever witnessed in Kenya.

The conviction rate  according to the report stands at 72.4% as opposed to the 2% alleged by the outspoken lawyer.  The Chief Justice said that this was the highest rate in that category.

Ahmednassir was trying to prove that Justice Wakiaga was unfair in denying Jowie bail stating that it was a tired excuse to term him as a flight risk.
