WATCH: Kenyan Police officers caught looting on camera

26 May 2016, 17:00

Nairobi - Kenyan police officers were caught on camera while stealing from a businesswoman's house, in the disguise that they were conducting a search for counterfeit goods. 

The footage, aired on Citizen News, showed the officers ransacking businesswoman Anne Nyokabi's house in the posh Loresho suburb of Kenya's capital Nairobi.

Watch the video below.

The officers allegedly arrived at the businesswoman's house with a search warrant claiming that they were searching for goods that were illegally brought into the country. But what went on afterwards were shocking scenes of open looting.

The businesswoman claimed that she lost personal effects valued at millions of Kenyan shillings during the supposed raid by Administration Police officers on her home.

"I realised that my money, foreign currency in dollars, pounds, rand was all gone. All my gold, rings, earrings are gone. My husband's Rolex watch, my Swiss watch too gone. My I-Phone 6 and my husband's Samsung, all gone," Nyokabi said in the footage.

Some officers were seen carrying paper-bags and stashing their loot in the open, acts which according to police spokesperson Masoud Mwinyi accounted to theft.

"That is classified as theft. If they have been caught on camera looting, then it is theft. We will take action if you send us the footage," he said.

This was not the first incident in which Kenyan officers were caught on camera looting.

In 2013, footage of Kenya Defence Forces, KDF officers looting from shops in the aftermath of the Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi surfaced, causing public uproar.

The Telegraph reported that the officers, who were on a search and rescue mission following the attack that killed at least 68 people, rummaged through jewellery shops, supermarkets and phone accessory points, stealing whatever they could lay their hands on.

Kenyan police were ranked among the most corrupt public institutions in Kenya, according to a December 2015 report.
