The British High Commission on Friday donated printers to enable the DCI prosecute high profile criminal and economic cases.

The two multipurpose bulk printers were received by the DCI boss George Kinoti and DPP Noordin Haji.

Kenyans have praised the investigative and prosecutorial agencies for their crackdown on corruption and theft of state resources. 

But the donation brought mixed reactions from Twitter users as others asked about what Britain is doing to repatriate money stashed in bank accounts overseas.

"The British commission should have first provided a list of names of kenyans with secret bank accounts in Britain," @jsciru said.

@DannieWax said: "It's only printers you were lacking and you didn't tell us all along? You can't be serious. We Kenyans could have bought for you state of the art ones, that are capable of printing 100 copies per minute."

"All printers leave a blue print, everything printed will be captured by British intelligence from now on, the guy is just being told... use our printer we fix these guys for you.... printer memory," @BensonWahome3 said.

@Citizen_Alert1 said: "I'm all for donations. But in cases of sensitive offices I would prefer the money & let the recipient do own purchase."

He added: "China once built an AU Hqs in Addis Ababa... they still haven't removed the bugs. @mucheru what's the policy on sensitive offices receiving electronic donations?"

 "Those printer are bugged peeps dont use them. A DPP office should be able to get printer their own way. Now they will get a copy of everything you scan or print," said @daudigithinji
