Nakuru EACC officers arrested by traffic police

28 November 2014, 20:56 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - Three Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC)  among them a driver were on Friday arrested by traffic police officers for failing to belt up  and produce a driving license upon request by traffic police officer near Free Are trading centre along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway.

The incident happened barely a month after 10 traffic police officers were arrested by the anti-graft agency officers for allegedly collecting bribes in Nakuru roads.

The three EACC officers were briefly held at the Nakuru central police station before being released later without any charges being preferred on them.

However, in a telephone interview, EACC spokesperson Yasin Amaro said that the EACC officers were harassed by the traffic officers after they realized that they were being filmed.

“Soon when they realized that our officers were filming them, they began harassing by arresting them and detaining them at the police station for some time,” said Amaro.

He said that the officers were making a follow up of the previous arrest after reports emerged that the same officers involved in collecting bribes were back on the road.

He said that they had received reports that the officers have resulted to carrying guns perhaps to scare away EACC officers-.

He hinted that already a request has been made to inspector general of police to withdraw guns from traffic police officers as published in one of the local dailies today.
