Two police officers have been charged with receiving Sh 5000 bribe.
The two Corporal Grace Wangari Wanja and Constable John Karuma Thomas denied the charges before the Anti-corruption Magistrate Thomas Nzioki.
They were charged that on January 23, 2019 fraudulently received benefits of Ksh 5,000 from George Chege Kiarii by falsely pretending to be in a position of helping him recover his civil debt of Ksh 25,000 from a motor vehicle spare parts broker.
After denying the charges, the two officers through lawyer Danstan Omari pleaded with the court to release the accused persons on reasonable bond terms stating that they are not a flight risk.
“The accused persons are not a flight risk as they are government officers and their fixed abode known. They will abide with all orders set by the court, “Omari said.
The magistrate however released the two police officers on a bond of Ksh 100,000 with an alternative cash bail of Ksh 50,000.
The case will be mentioned on July 20, 2022.
