Three men have been arrested for allegedly attempting to bribe a police officer in Mombasa.
According to the EACC, the police office made the complaint after the suspects tried to bribe her with Ksh1.7 million to influence investigations that she was carrying out relating to fraudulent deals at the Mombasa port.
The Police Officer declined the offer and reported the matter to EACC.
The three suspects identified as Philip Muigai Nduati, Boniface Aggrey Ouma and Isaac Wanaloba Kenyari were processed at EACC Mombasa Offices and booked at Mombasa Central Police Station.
They will be charged before the Anti-Corruption Court on Wednesday at 9:00am.
“The Commission applauds the Police Officer who declined the bribe offer and instead reported the matter to EACC. This is what is expected of all public officials when they face such ethical dilemmas,” said EACC in a statement.
