Police officer makes money escorting Hindu gods

17 June 2016, 08:59

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.

Ndalana however explained that Kotesha paid him to escort the gods during religious processions and funerals, Daily Nation adds.

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.
