Traffic police officers arrested taking bribes

09 October 2015, 18:35 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Officials of Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) have (Friday) arrested two traffic police officers who were taking bribes from motorists at Karatina-Kerugoya junction, Nyeri County.

EACC Central region deputy director, Jackson Mue said the officers were arrested following outcry from members of the public.

The duo was manning a roadblock during the occurrence.

“We undertook covert investigations and later a sting operation was conducted leading to the arrest of the two male officers,” said Mue while speaking to journalists in his offices in Nyeri town.

He revealed that the officers are at the ranks of Constables and are attached at Karatina traffic Sub-Base.

He added that EACC detectives recovered huge amounts of money of various denominations hidden in the officers’ pockets.

Mue, however, failed to disclose the amount of money stating that investigations into the matter were still ongoing noting that the money will be produced as exhibit during a court trial.

“The officers have already been booked at Nyeri Central Police Station and will be arraigned in court next week upon completion of investigations,” said Mue adding that their mobile phones were also confiscated to aid the detectives in getting more information.

He urged public officers to uphold integrity in their activities as he asked members of the public to continue reporting all forms of corruption to EACC.

He further warned that the operation will be extended to other departments of public offices in the region.
