She explained that the photo was taken in September 1993 at a student gathering during their first week in campus.

“Young’uns, please follow the message from my former law school classmate Noordin Haji: “I want to caution everybody to obey the rules, especially the young people…Okonkwo hatawezana na covid-19 kama haoshi mikono na kuvaa mask.”

“Throwback: September 1993, 1st week of the first year of Uni. At a students gathering in the Students Union, University of Wales, Cardiff. 2 law students and 3 medics. We had fun, but we all were a stickler for the rules,” captioned Gichuru. 

Noordin Haji worked as a senior officer with the National Intelligence Service before appointment as Director of Public Prosecutions.

Haji won Kenyans’ hearts after spearheading major crackdowns on corrupt political bigwigs shortly after kicking off his tenure.
