Chief, assistants locked in pub for soliciting bribe

16 October 2014, 15:30 Joseph Njung’eh

Thika - Drama unfolded in Thika town when a chief and his two assistants were locked up in a bar by attendants who were accusing them of soliciting bribe.

The three are said to have paid a surprise visit to the pub for selling alcohol in day time, contrary to the Kiambu County Alcoholic Drinks Control Act.

However, the pub manager and the attendants locked them up within the premises accusing them of demanding for bribe.

It took the intervention of the area AP commandant who sent his officers to rescue them.

Contacted for comment, area Deputy County Commissioner Jeremiah Gicheru condemned the incident saying the chiefs were on a normal crackdown of liquor outlets flouting the set Alcoholic laws.

"Bar owners in Thika town were craftily breaching laws prohibiting them from selling liquor before 5.00pm by issuing lodging receipts to their customers asking them to pose as lodgers," he said.

He said the pub attendants have since been arrested and will have charges preferred against them for stopping government officers from carrying out their duties.
