60 Police Officers Sent home over receiving bribe
National Police Service Commission has dismissed sixty-three
senior police officers over corruption.
Speaking to journalists in Nairobi NPSC chairman Johnstone
Kavuludi said his commission has unearthed massive corruption
in the traffic department.
“Through scrutiny of M-Pesa statements, the commission was
able to establish that junior officers working in the traffic
department regularly transferred fixed amounts of money to
some of their seniors, suggesting that they had been given
targets,” NPSC chairman Johnston Kavuludi told journalists.
This follows 14 months of the vetting exercise in which 1,364
officers were investigated.
Administration Police spokesman Masoud Mwinyi is among
those who have been sent home.
The officers vetted hold the ranks of senior superintendents,
superintendents and assistant superintendents.
