Nairobi - A traffic police officer based in Kisumu shocked the police vetting team after he said that he made his wealth escorting Hindu gods.
Ndalana was responding to a question by the panel chair, Commissioner Ronald Musengi who had demanded to know why the officer was frequently receiving money from a local businessman by the name Hemal Kotesha, Standard reports.
Kotesha owns a fleet of vehicles and has reportedly been giving money to top traffic officers, raising bribery suspicion.

He further pointed out that Kotesha is a kind and good-hearted person who likes giving money to the poor.
In his defense, Kotesha wrote to the panel saying that his gestures were in good faith.
