Principal arrested for demanding ksh50,000 bribe from a supplier

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has arrested Keekonyokie Mixed Day Secondary School Principal Erustus Ruiru Nganga for demanding a Ksh50,000 bribe from a supplier.

Nganga is accused of soliciting the bribe in order to release a payment cheque amounting to Ksh410,000 for goods supplied to the institution.

According to EACC, the arrest came after the supplier refused to comply and instead notified the anti-graft agency which immediately mounted an operation.

The Principal was apprehended after pocketing Kes. 40,000 as part of the demanded bribe and escorted to Ntulele Police Station in Narok where he is currently detained pending further processing on Thursday.

“Cases of this nature are common in schools where some Principals embezzle school funds placed under their care, sometimes in collusion with private persons, including corrupt suppliers who draw money from schools without supplying anything,” stated EACC.

The Commission has urged members of the public to remain vigilant and report any instances of corruption through their Toll-Free Number, 1551. Such proactive measures are essential in exposing and holding accountable individuals involved in corrupt practices, ensuring that justice is served in accordance with the law.
