On Thursday night, Naibei was arrested by the detectives and moved to the commission’s offices where he recorded a statement before he is charged with bribery charges.
Confirming the incident was EACC Spokesperson Eric Ngumbi who noted that the commission has mounted a sting operation on highways to ensure that corrupt offices do not take advantage of the holiday season.
It has also been noted that some motorists flaunt traffic rules as they are sure that they will have their way through bribes.
