Mombasa Government cracks down on corrupt inspectorate officers

28 April 2016, 15:44 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho on Wednesday ordered a thorough investigation on rogue inspectorate officers who have been harassing locals and soliciting for bribes.

Joho said that the move comes after cries from locals in Mombasa that the inspectorate department was full of rogue Askaris who would solicit bribes in their daily duties.

In a statement to news rooms the governor pointed out an incident where a Businessman by the name Peter Oluoch who manages ‘Vipingo ridge golf resort’ in Kilifi county reported to the Head of inspectorate Mr. Charles Changawa that two Officers from the Inspectorate visited the business premises thrice a week to solicit for bribes despite the golf resort being situated at Kilifi and not within Mombasa.

“We are going to crack the whip on these Officers they have completely tarnished the image of our county” he added.

On his part Mr. Changawa revealed that the inspectorate department on Wednesday afternoon paraded all the county Askaris and their heads at their training centre in Tudor within Mombasa and Mr. Oluoch was able to identify two officers who are still being detained at the central police station.

“We are still carrying out investigations over the same matter and the public should come forward and report to us on the behaviour of our inspectorate officers so that we can deal with them” he said.

Changawa has warned the inspectorate officers that anyone indulging in corruption deals will be immediately suspended.
