Traffic officers turning highways into corruption centers

12 November 2015, 10:58 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Matatu Owners Association chairman, Simon Kimutai has accused traffic police officers of turning major highways in Kenya into corruption centers.

Speaking in Nairobi Wednesday, Mutai called for the removal of the officers from the highways saying they have formed a parallel government to collect money from motorists.

“80 percent of traffic police officers should be removed from all highways to end corruption in traffic department. They have turned the highways into corruption centers yet they don’t add any value at all,” Kimutai said.

He further remarked that spot fined won't eradicate corruption, saying bold decisions should be put in place to end the vice.

“Spot fines means you are giving an alternative to the culprits, but Kenyans do not need an alternative,” Kimutai said.

On the cashless payment of fares, Kimutai blamed suspended Transport Cabinet Secretary, Michael Kamau for the failure of system, saying he took it with haste.

“The system failed because the CS wanted it to be implemented under a timeline that was not possible, but all is not lost because we are working on it as an association and within a year, we will be back with a system that we are sure it will be successful,” Kimutai said.
