23 September 2016, 13:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Four family members including a former navy soldier have been arrested for allegedly attempting to bribe military officers in the ongoing KDF recruitment.

The suspects were arrested at Ruring’u stadium in Nyeri County, where the recruitment was taking place.

Lieutenant Colonel Mathew Lenamunai said the suspects were arrested with KES 86,000, a driving license and stamps belonging to various KDF institutions.

Lenamunai said they received intelligence reports that there was a suspect trying to influence the exercise.

He said they followed up the matter and arrested him.

Military officers also arrested an elderly man, his daughter and grandson who were trying to canvass their way into KDF.

Lenamunai said they found out that they were colluding to ensure that they influenced the young man’s recruitment.

He added that the main suspect, who is an elderly man, enrolled in the military in 2007 and resigned in 2009.

It was not immediately established why he resigned and what he does for a living.

Following the arrest, KDF officers handed the suspects to Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers and the police.

The recruitment went on as scheduled, with over 200 youths from Nyeri Central sub-county turning up for the exercise.
