EACC detectives arrest Kajiado West Deputy Land Registrar

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives have arrested one Sheila Nandako, the Deputy Land Registrar of Kisamis Lands office in Kajiado West.

Sheila was arrested alongside fellow colleague identified as Washington Wahome for demanding a bribe of Ksh 148,000 from a complaint so as to release his 74 tittle deeds which she was holding contrary to the law.

“They were processed at Integrity Centre Police Station on Thursday and later booked at Kilimani Police Station pending further action. The Kajiado Lands Office is among those with many complaints of corruption in land transactions.

In the instant case, the Deputy Land Registrar has allegedly directly and indirectly through the named officer been extorting money from citizens seeking facilitation of land transactions.” said EACC

According to the commission, the arrest is part of an ongoing operation seeking to curb corruption at its start.

“The arrest of the two land officials is part of ongoing operations by the Commission across the country to tame and disrupt corruption at service delivery points where citizens seeking services are routinely subjected to extortion by corrupt public officials.

Notably, corruption at service delivery points hurts ordinary citizens daily and leads to denial or inordinate delay of services.

Members of the public with reports of suspected corruption by any state or public official are encouraged to share the same with EACC for action in accordance with the law.” said EACC
