Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Nyeri County have arrested two police officers accused of receiving Ksh.500,000 bribe in 2018.

According to EACC Central Region head Charles Rasugu, received the bribe as an inducement to effect an eviction order, validly issued by court against illegal occupants of a private property.

The two officers are Jane Kavutha, who is currently the OCPD Likoni, and Ephraim Karani, the deputy OCPD Nyandarua West.

“They were arrested following conclusion of investigation into alleged demand of a bribe Ksh.500,000, by the duo, while serving in South Kinangop, Nyandarua County, as Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) and District Administration Police Commander (DAPC), respectively,” said the EACC, in a statement.

The DPP consented to the prosecution of the said officers on February 10, 2021.

The two are set to be arraigned at the Nyahururu Law Courts next week.
