Male cops banned from carrying out prostitute swoops

23 March 2015, 21:40

Nakuru - Following increased cases of sexual assault against commercial sex workers by police officers, Nakuru police boss Bernard Kioko has directed all male police officers to desist from taking part in swoops targeting prostitutes in the town.

Speaking at his office Monday morning, Kioko said that only female police officers will be allowed to undertake the swoops.

“We have been reporting so many cases of sexual assault targeting female sex workers by police officers and as much as we are against commercial sex work, we must also not allow our officers to harass these women and from today, all male police officers will not be allowed to carry out the swoops,” said Kioko.

Kioko added that a special unit of female police officers has been formed to deal with the increasing number of sex workers in Nakuru.

“I doubt if female officers can sexually harass sex workers and that is why we have decided to form this special unit and it will be all women," he said.

Last week, a group of commercial sex workers stormed the Nakuru central police station to protest against harassment by police officers.
