“You cannot enter my office while carrying a briefcase,” DCI boss explains why
DCI boss strict directive
Individuals wanting to meet with Mr Kinoti are now forced to abandon their briefcases and proceed to his office luggage free.
The DCI boss issued the strict directive after several powerful individuals tried to bribe him in a bid to stop investigations into alleged corruption cases at Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC), Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC), Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and the National Youth Service.
Kinoti told a local daily that six weeks ago, he was lured into a meeting at a luxurious hotel in Kiambu where Sh500 million (converted in US dollars) packed in a briefcase was presented to him as a bribe.
He said that upon realizing what was going on he hurriedly left the meeting.
"I found myself in an awkward position but I decided to leave it at that. But this should serve a warning to others with such thinking that next time, they would be arrested," he said.
Yet another group of powerful individuals linked to the importation of contraband sugar booked an interview with him and presented a whopping Sh200 million as a bribe.
After these two incidents, the DCI boss resolved that nobody carrying a briefcase should be permitted to enter his office.
"I don’t want blood money …I am determined to fight corruption to the end and anybody that’s involved in looting should be prepared to carry their own cross," he told the local paper.
