REVEALED: How M-Pesa has made senior traffic officers rich

26 August 2016, 13:14 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Senior traffic police officers in rift valley have been forcing their juniors to send them money via M-PESA.

The junior officers who are being vetted by the national police service commission in Nakuru have told the vetting board that the money they collect on the roads ends up in the pockets of their bosses.

What surprised the vetting board is that some traffic officers in the rift valley are forced to send money to their previous bosses in other regions.

The vetting board established that the amount of money send to senior traffic police officers by their juniors amounts to millions of shillings every month.

The Johnston Kavuludi-led team also established that most police stations and posts have M-PESA points or agents within their compounds or close to them, most of which are owned by police officers.

During the vetting, the national police service commission members wondered why almost all police officers being vetted were involved in business and merry-go-rounds generating millions of shillings.

The vetting continues.
