EACC detectives in Mombasa have arrested a cop after he solicited and received Sh7,000 from a blogger.
“Changamwe DCI officer Nahashon Kibet Minai is accused of intending to release a confiscated Mombasa-based blogger’s phone after the pay.”
The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission Southern regional manager George Ojowi said the writer’s identity is protected for his security.
It is suspected he recorded a damaging video that EACC will use against Minai.
“The Commission arrested the Officer as he was trying to run away with the bribe that he had pocketed,” Ojowi said.
The money, he said, was recovered after the sleuths overpowered the suspect.
“He was taken to Port Police Station and later on released on cash bail pending being arraigned in court,” Ojowi said.
