Kasarani Member of Parliament John Njoroge is due to be charged in court on Thursday for allegedly soliciting a bribe from a construction firm.
It is alleged that the Member of Parliament was arrested in a sting operation that the commission arranged after he demanded the bribe.
â€œWe got a complaint from a contractor who was waiting for payment of Sh3.3 million as payment for a tuition block that he had completed and the MP demanded for Sh150,000 as bribe so as to speed up the process,â€ EACCâ€™s Chief Executive Halakhe Waqo said.
â€œNjoroge who was arrested earlier today and put in our cells will be charged tomorrow in the Anti-Corruption Court,â€ added Waqo.
Njoroge who is a former deputy mayor was the whistle-blower in the Mavoko cemetery land scandal.
His arrest comes as the jubilee government strives to fight graft and rid itself of rogue politicians in its leadership.
