Former Bonchari MP Oimeke fined ksh. 1 million or to serve a 3 years sentence.

A Nairobi court has convicted former Bonchari MP, Robert Oimeke, for receiving Sh200,000 bribe. The court has fined him KSH 1 million or he is to serve a three years sentence. During his trial, the court heard that anti-corruption officials seized thousands of shillings from Oimeke suspected to be part of a bribe. Mike Mbuvi, an Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) official, told the court that he seized Sh200,000 from Oimeke on 12 December, 2020, which had been handed to him by one Wycliffe Odhiambo, a petroleum dealer. Mr. Mbuvi stated before the court that the money was given by Mr. Odhiambo whom Oimeke had asked for a bribe worth kSh500,000. Senior Principal Magistrate Peter Ouko, heard that EACC officials laid a trap for the former EPRA boss and arrested him after he received the money. Mr. Mbuvi said Oimeke was arrested in his office in Upper hill, Nairobi. Mr. Odhiambo had reported to EACC that Oimeke had demanded a bribe for him to authorize the reopening of a Petrol station in Oyugis, Homa Bay County. The EACC officer produced in court the money seized as exhibits for the case. Evidence provided showed that the MP had requested the bribe via text and more voice recordings between Mr. Odhiambo and Oimeke were provided proving that he had successfully received the money.
