Director of Public Prosecutions' Message

Welcome to National Prosecution Authority (NPA) website. NPA is the institution mandated to provide an effective and efficient prosecution service to the public in an accountable and transparent manner in order to uphold the rule of law, justice and human right. It is our cardinal duty to ensure that the right person is prosecuted for the right offence, thereby bringing offenders to justice. In the provision of the prosecutorial service NPA works and coordinates with all the stakeholders in the criminal Justices System.
The prosecution process includes but is not limited to the following:

  • rendering advise on matters relating to criminal law and procedures;
  • advising Law Enforcements Agencies in the gathering and collecting of evidence;
  • attending trials and appeals;
  • engaging in plea negotiations agreements;
  • receiving and dealing with complaints from the general public; and
  • administering the Witness Management Fund.
