An officer of the KDF has acknowledged buying a position for one of his relatives as a prison guard.
KDF officer Anthony Barongo testified in court as one of the witnesses in a case where Nelson, the suspect, is accused of stealing money from members of the public by promising to give them a chance to work in Kenyan prisons.Anthony confessed that he paid Ksh.2.4 million to help six youths—among them, two of his relatives—join Kenya Prison while being questioned by attorney Danstan Omari. He clarified that this wasn't just one way to bring Nelson, but rather facilitation fees.
Do you believe it is appropriate to refer to these as facilitation fees or was it an attempt to bribe Nelson in order to secure employment for his kin?
