Kenya Power impostor busted while demanding for Sh200k bribe

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives on Tuesday arrested a man who was masquerading as a Kenya Power official and had allegedly tried to extort money from a customer.

EACC, in a tweet, said the suspect, identified as Michael Njogu Mburu, was seeking a Sh200,000 bribe to stop action against a complainant whom he had accused of tampering with the electricity meter.

Mburu, who claimed to be a Kenya Power Inspector, will be arraigned in court on Wednesday.

His arrest comes after police recovered stolen Kenya Power equipment worth Sh20 million at a home in Membley estate, Ruiru on Tuesday morning.

During the raid a suspect was arrested in connection to the stolen equipment.
