Police should stop demanding bribes from us, MPs complain

19 August 2015, 09:40 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Two Members of Parliament have complained over what they term as extortion by a section of police officers whom they claim demand money after providing them with security at public meetings.

The MPs; Ferdinand Wanyonyi (Kwanza) and Francis Mwangangi (Yatta) on Tuesday reported the rogue officers to Interior and National Co-ordination Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery for disciplinary action.

“I want to know why some police officers waylay some of us at the end of political rallies and meeting in our constituencies demanding for payment, yet it is their duty to provide security at such meetings,” complained Wanyonyi.

“Sometimes police officers come to provide security at a public function, but after the event they come for payment from us the MPs, yet it is their responsibility. They will demand payment as if it is their fight yet there is no receipt given," wondered Wanyonyi .

Mwangangi said the constitutional role of police officers is to provide security and they should not be paid by MPs to discharge their roles.

“These police officers are paid by taxpayers money to discharge their mandate. They should not receive extra money from lawmakers for providing security,” Nkaissery told the MPs, referring to Section 104 of the Police Service Act.
