Chief who solicited bribes from resident arraigned

16 August 2016, 20:34 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A Nyeri chief who was arrested by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives while soliciting bribes has been arraigned in court.

Samuel Nderitu, who is the Chief for Kimathi location in Tetu sub-county, was charged with three counts of corruptly soliciting for benefits contrary to Section 39 (3) of the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act.

He court heard that on August 5, this year at Small Joint Bar in Nyeri town he solicited KES.17,000 from Daniel Kamuthu Mathenge as inducement to remove a restriction order placed on a parcel of land in Tetu Thatha.

He allegedly committed the offence despite being a government officer under the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of national government.

He was also charged with receiving KES.7,000 from Mathenge as bribe to withdraw the restriction order.

However, Nderitu denied the charges and was released on a KES.200,000 bond with a surety of similar amount.

He appeared before Chief Magistrate John Onyiengo.
