Witnesses say the officers fired into the air repeatedly to disperse the crowd baying for the two cops blood.
A motorcycle of registration number KMFC 390 that the officers were using was also set ablaze during the kerfuffle.
“Police oficers enforcing curfew are friendly and familiar to us, these one’s were ruthless and arrogant which prompted us to suspect they were not police officers, we gave them a good beating, one tried to plead with the crowd while talking in Kalenjin but no one heard him,”s aid Nelson Bett, a boda boda operator at Sotik.
Bomet county commandant Naomi Ichami said investigation into the matter have begun.
