Former Kasarani MP John Njoroge Chege was on Friday (May 29) found guilty of receiving Sh100,000 bribe from a contractor, and was slapped with Sh1.3 million fine.

Chege is said to have received the bribe from the contractor who was building a tuition block at the Baba Dogo Secondary School on July 13, 2013, to facilitate his payment of Sh3,342,716 from the Constituency Development Fund. 

The former lawmaker pleaded with the court to be lenient with him, as he is remorseful and a family man.

Chief Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi convicted the former MP for seeking and receiving the bribe. Chege is expected to pay Sh650,000 for soliciting the bribe, and Sh650,000 for receiving the bribe seven years ago, or serve a one-year jail sentence.
