What you need to know:

  • Focus now shifts to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate and prosecute the Kenyans named in the indictment against the Britons.
  • Also on the spot is former Knec chief executive Paul Wasanga and top officials, including Mr Ephraim Wanderi, Mr Michael Ndua and Mr Geoffrey Gitogo.
  • The prosecution told the court that the bribes were wired to the account of Mr Oyombra, who would withdraw the money and give it to the elections and exams officials.
