According to People Daily, the individuals with deep pockets who he believed were proceeds of corrupt deals, lured him to a luxurious hotel in Kiambu and offered him KSh 500 million cash money.

"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 was quoted by the People Daily as having said.
He revealed after the incident, another group of individuals made of brokers claiming to have critical information which might help unravel the mystery of bad sugar importation, tried to bribe him again.

They allegedly managed to secure a meeting with him at his office to discuss the issue and it was after this secret meeting when one of the gentlemen remained behind and offered him KSh 200 million which he turned down.
"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," added the no nonsense detective.

There are at least 15 mega corruption scandals in Kenya which have never been resolved with maize scam at the National Cereal and Produce Board (NCPB) and National Youth Service (NYS) are some of the latest.

Preliminary investigations revealed some KSh 1.9 billion was pocketed by eight individuals who allegedly conspired with senior NCPB officials to steal from poor local farmers.

Another KSh 9 billion was stolen from the second phase of NYS scam, which is also touted as the biggest in the history of the youth empowerment programme.
