Investigators from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) have arrested a Judiciary employee over corruption allegations.
The EACC revealed the arrest of Moses Gitonga Mucheke in a tweet on Wednesday.
Mucheke is said to have received a Sh50,000 bride from a man whose brother is embroiled in a defilement case.
''@EACCKenya investigators have arrested @Kenyajudiciary employee, Moses Gitonga Mucheke, based at Marimanti Law Courts in Tharaka Nithi County for soliciting and receiving a bribe of Sh50,000 from a man whose brother is facing a charge of defilement in court,'' wrote the EACC.
In a separate incident, a police constable attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was arrested over allegations of receiving a Sh30,000 bribe.
''Police Constable Boniface Mulei Karuami attached to @DCI_Kenya arrested by @EACCKenya investigators for soliciting a bribe of Sh30,000 from a proprietor of a primary school in Eldoret town,'' said EACC.
The government has reiterated its commitment to fighting corruption in the country.
President Uhuru Kenyatta who is serving his second and last term in office has on several occassions promised not to relent in the fight against graft.
In August 2018, President Uhuru noted that he will continue fighting impunity even if it means losing some of his friends in the process.
"Over the last few weeks, I have lost so many friends. I have received many calls being asked ‘how can you sit and just watch all this destruction going on. You must stop it'. But I said, it is difficult to stop, not because we love to destroy but because we must fight impunity,” he said.
