Waihiga Mwaura disclosed that 15 years ago, he was asked to give KSh 200 bribe for an internship and out of 200 people, he was the only one who declined.
"When we got there we were about 200 of us. We had already been given the job but there was only one condition. It was a must for your health to be okay. We were asked to do a blood test, a medical test involving stool and a urine test," he said. Within two minutes some doctor told us if we give him the money, he will give us all clearance so that we start work on Monday. In the same group, someone volunteered to collect the money and when he got to me, I refused. Something told me that if I start giving out bribes now, I will never flourish," he added.
Even though he later got the internship position, he was called for a media job a week later, which came with an immediate starting date; he said said not giving bribes and standing for the right thing opened doors for him.
He encouraged college students to do the right thing when they graduate and are looking for opportunities.
