Nairobi - A senior CID officer has been arrested by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC for taking a KES 35,000 bribe.

Tigania West CID boss James Oludhe was Monday arrested by the EACC for allegedly soliciting the bribe from a teacher.

EACC officers said that the suspect asked for the bribe so that he would not write a letter of interdiction to be forwarded to the Teachers Service Commission.

The aggrived party, a Stanley Mwiti reported the matter to the EACC on Friday and recorded a statement Saturday before recording his conversation with Oludhe.

Oludhe was held at the Isiolo EACC office, where he recorded a statement over the matter.

When reached by News24 to make a statement, Oludhe declined.

" The recording places him in a serious position, an EACC detective handling the case told News24.
