A University of Nairobi lecturer previously charged with demanding and receiving a Sh 5000 bribe from a student to award him exam marks has been charged afresh.

Vincent Mbaindo Kathumo had previously been charged with receiving the money in order to award the student exam marks after he was found cheating during examination.

The lecturer faces the new charge after the prosecution amended the charges against him.

Kathuno is now facing the charge of corruptly requesting for Sh 5,000 from Duncan Kibet so as to forgive him for examination irregularities after he was found cheating.

The lecturer was also charged with corruptly receiving Sh 3,000 and another Sh 2,000 bribe from Kibet as an inducement so as to  allow him re-take  Lands Forms and Soil Formation Unit examination  after he was found cheating on.

The accused who denied the charges appeared before Anti-Corruption Senior Principal Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi.

Magistrate Mugambi ordered that Kathumo’s earlier bond terms of Sh 100,000 or cash bail of 80,000 remain in force.

The matter will be mentioned on September 27th for directions.
