Susan Wambui, an Inspector of Police

Susan Wambui, an Inspector of Police who was detained last month on suspicion of bribery, has been given bail.

Wambui was released on Ksh300,000 cash bail or a Ksh500,000 substitute bond after the Milimani Anti-Corruption Court heard his denial of the allegations of bribery, as reported by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

"The defendant in this instance entered a plea before the Milimani Anti-Corruption Court yesterday. She was charged with accepting a bribe in violation of Sections 6(1) and 18(1) of the Bribery Act No. 47 of 2016, and she entered a not-guilty plea. She was then freed on a Ksh300,000 cash bail or a Ksh500,000 bond with a Ksh500,000 surety. The matter will be brought up on August 22, 2023, "according to a statement from the EACC.

The officer was accused of receiving a bribe, which would have violated Sections 6(1) and 18(1) of the Bribery Act No. 47 of 2016, respectively.

On July 28, 2023, an event that resulted in Wambui's arrest took place after the EACC opened an investigation into charges of bribery against her.

The EACC suggested that Inspector Muiruri be prosecuted on two separate charges of collecting and accepting a bribe in accordance with the results of its investigation.

The purported allegations concerned the Police Inspector allegedly asking an individual for a bribe on April 25, 2021, in order to help his pregnant girlfriend, who was being held at Kasarani Police Station, get released.

"All Kenyans of good conscience must strive to halt this evil and prejudiced strategy that attacks the police, under the leadership of Inspector General of Police, Mr. Koome. Why is EACC Kenya so fixated on police officers making Ksh 30k per month? What is this infatuation and lunacy with the little fish?" he said.

"When should the EACC pursue the governors, judges, and cabinet secretaries of this regime and the one before it who stole billions?" Persist with the cops and correctly do your duties instead. Pursue those who steal millions of dollars every day, not the policeman who receives 500 shillings to purchase unga for his five children," he said.
