Traffic cops arrested with a paper bag full of money
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives on Saturday, January 28 arrested four traffic police officers for allegedly extorting motorists.
The four, among them a Police Inspector, were arrested at Kakuzi along the Nairobi-Murang’a Highway where they are said to have been taking bribes from drivers of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) and other motorists along the highway.
The detectives also recovered a paper bag full of notes in different denominations before taking the officers to Integrity House where they recorded statement.
The arrest comes even as the number of traffic police officers arrested over bribery continues to rise.
So far, 100 traffic officers have been arraigned over similar offences.
The anti-graft body deputy Chief Executive Officer, Michael Mubea, now wants the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, to help expedite the cases.
