Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) detectives have arrested two suspects who were impersonating immigration officers.
The two, Patrick Kizengwa Kilaya and Billy Kidula Adingo, were arrested at Nyayo House allegedly extorting money from persons seeking services such as passports and work permits.
K24 Digital understands that the two were arrested after soliciting Ksh370,000 from a Norwegian National pretending that they were in a position to assist him in securing a Kenyan work permit and other documents within minutes, so long as he gave them the money.
"The complainant reported the matter to EACC which mounted an operation and arrested the suspects while receiving the amount. They will be arraigned before the Anti-Corruption Court next week," EACC revealed.

EACC is also investigating allegations that some immigration officials at Nyayo House are colluding with impostors to irregularly and fraudulently issue immigration documents.
"Any individual found culpable will be dealt with in accordance with the law. Members of the public are encouraged to continue exposing corruption at service delivery points," EACC added.
