6 year jail for a Machakos Principal over Ksh 10,000 bribe



A secondary school Principal from Machakos was  June, 7, 2018 sentenced to Six Years imprisonment after a Machakos Court found him guilty of endeavoring  and receiving a Sh10,000 bribe.


The bribe was meant to give access to the  release of a cheque for payment of  computers and other accessories issued to Wakaela Secondary School.


Machakos Anti-Corruption Court Senior Principal Magistrate Abdul Lorot issued the ruling.


The so recent decision comes barely a few days after a middle aged lady was sentenced to two years in prison by the Anti-Corruption Court sitting in Nairobi, after she was found guilty of receiving a Sh2,500 bribe.


Justinah Malela Syonzua,the accused, was ordered to pay a fine of Sh500,000 to  alternate the jail term set out by Chief Magistrate Douglas Agoti.


Justinah who is a former employee of the Ministry of Interior and Co-ordination of National Government, was charged with several counts, but the prosecution was only able to prove four charges levelled against her.


Following her sentencing Kenyans across the board condemned the decision saying only small offenders are being punished yet big fish in country who are accused of multi billion shillings corruption cases have been left scot free.
