EACC officers arrest chief for demanding KES 20K bribe

08 August 2016, 13:21 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives have arrested a chief in Tetu, Nyeri County for demanding a KES 20,000 bribe from a family to settle a land dispute.

The Kimathi location chief, identified as Samuel Ndiritu, was arrested after he allegedly placed a land restriction order on a family land following a dispute over its ownership.

He reportedly placed the order secretly in collusion with the Lands office in Nyeri and tried to extort money from the owners saying he would in turn help them withdraw the restriction.

According to EACC Central Regional Deputy Director Jackson Mue, the chief was arrested shortly after receiving some KES 7,000 as part of the KES 20,000 bribe.

“The suspect has since been booked at the Nyeri Central Police Station and will be charged in court,” said Mue.

Nyeri town OCPD, Masai Makau confirmed the arrest and said that the matter is under investigation.

The chief was however released on a police bond of KES 20,000 awaiting court trial.
