Suspects Patrick Kizengwa Kilaya and Billy Kidula Adingo arrested for impersonating immigration officers

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers have arrested two suspects for allegedly impersonating immigration officers.

Patrick Kizengwa Kilaya and Billy Kidula Adingo were said to be extorting money from persons seeking passports and work permits at Nyayo House.

The two were arrested after soliciting Sh370,000 from a Norwegian National pretending that they were in a position to assist him in securing a Kenyan work permit and other immigration documents within minutes.

“The complainant reported the matter to EACC which mounted an operation and arrested the suspects while receiving the amount on Thursday,” EACC said in a statement.

The two will be arraigned before the Anti-Corruption Court next week.

EACC said it 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,” the commission said.
