She told the military police unit that they had met with Mr. Mungatana and another man who identified himself as Collins Paul Waweru.

It is alleged Mr. Mungatana was introduced to her and her colleague as as the senior person pushing for the tenders at DOD.

The meeting is said to have taken place at Sagret Hotel in Nairobi where the two men apparently demanded for Ksh.1million for the deal to go through.

Officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations  (DCI) rushed to the scene and arrested Mr. Mungatana and Mr. Waweru.
